This Kid Will Never Be Potty-Trained
by Charlotte Siems
Have you ever felt like your circumstances will last forever?
This kid will never be potty-trained.
I will be homeschooling the rest of my life.
I’m never going to have this baby.
I’ll never get a full night’s sleep.
Let me give you a bit of older-mom perspective. None of those circumstances are permanent.
Our child who was the oldest when he potty-trained does not currently wear diapers to work. Names won’t be named to protect the guilty, but let’s just say this child grew up to be a man whom we’re very proud of.
Homeschooling will come to an end. I think. Having graduated seven so far, I know how fast it goes.
Every pregnancy I had, no matter how overdue—even 23 days overdue—eventually came to an end and the baby was born. Now those babies are having babies of their own.
At this stage of life I usually get a full night’s sleep, even though I had more than 25 years of babies and toddlers.
Three years from now, the things you’re doing today will seem like only yesterday.
Twenty years from now they will be fond, wistful memories.
And you thought this would last forever.
