0-3 Month Sleepers and Living in the Moment
My youngest son is right on schedule with his growth. Just a couple of days after he turned three months old, I noticed he was a little too snug in his 0-3 month sleepers. I decided daycare would probably prefer him to be able to stretch out his legs, so I went and got him a more appropriately sized outfit. As I zipped up those new pajamas, it suddenly dawned on me– I am likely never going to have a child wear 0-3 month sleepers again. My brain dwelled on that somber fact, perhaps a little too long. Suddenly my thoughts were interrupted by input by my eyeballs.
Earth to Vicky. Earth to Vicky. Hellloooo! There is an infant smiling at you RIGHT NOW.
I focused on the baby below me and there he was, happily wiggling and cooing, his eyes crunched up into tiny little crescents.
Smile back, you jackass!
So I did and just like that, the moment of melancholy passed.
