The babies will be three next month. For the past six months, maybe a year, I’ve received many comments and questions about why I still refer to them as babies. And everyone is right. First the term is fitting and correct. Then it’s cute in the “aww, she still thinks of her toddlers as babies” way. Then it simply becomes outplayed.
My kids can walk, they can talk, they can think logically. They eat regular food with forks and spoons. They pull down their pants and use the toilet. They make up games and play independently. Long gone are the days of baby-gates and Gerber food. They’re big girls now. They even treat the dog with respect. When is mommy going to catch up?
