I hear there is a turning point. The point at which a parent wonders what happened to the closeness they used to have with their child. But as for now, I love all of the new stages of our kids.
Well, except for new born. I know this is not a popular opinion (except for among the honest) but, newborns are the worst. Throwing up pooping screaming. Basically, a pet that behaved that way would be…hmmmm… would be….
Since newborn stage, my kids just keep getting better. Now, they are more perfect than ever. Not perfect in the actual sense. Izzy is untidy and Isaac can be very bothered by me.
But, they are so adorable. I know i know. What nine and ten year olds are adorable? Mine. They are confident and outgoing and independent. I think that that is the proudest observation that a parent makes. Observing their child become independent.
Until, of course, they are so independent as to despise your every attempt to parent. Which may be age ten and twelve for all I know. I am enjoying the ride though.
