It goes by so quickly

We're on the tail end of the sick train. On the one hand, no more throwing up. On the other hand, no more 5 hour naps.

I really miss naps.

Other things I realize I've missed of late.

Diaper bags. Guys, I no longer carry a ginorm diaper bag with me wherever I go. I also don't have extra clothes in the back of the car, a bottle warmer in the glove compartment, emergency ziploc bags, or a *gasp* stroller.

The back of my car? Has a yoga mat and free weights.

My purse? Has my wallet, keys, a stray toy or two, and if I remember to put it in, a diaper.

When did I get to the point in my life where diapers were an optional carrying item?

I have full fledged KIDS.

Next thing I know, they'll be graduating college and having their own babies.

I guess those people that said "it goes by so quickly" actually knew what they were talking about.


  1. SOOOOO true! I have one more in diapers and I am in no hurry to potty train! he is my last baby

  2. It does go fast. Yesterday I had the diaper bag, today I have one out of the house and another driving his own car.

  3. The day I knew we had full fledged kids was the day I told both girls "Let's go." and didn't need to help anyone with shoes, help anyone carry her stuff, or help anyone with her car seat / seat belt.

  4. I miss the diaper bag days, too!

    I actually carried it around much longer than necessary because I couldn't come to grips with a real purse. Sadness.

  5. Very well said. I need to remember that as I am stressing to get the diaper bag packed.
