Five Minute Friday: Last
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community...
Five minutes on last...
Benjamin's teacher told me the other day that she thinks he's ready for underwear. He has been going potty at school all week and they only time they've had to change him were the dirty diapers. She said some kids do really well just training in underwear (even though it will likely mean lots of laundry for the first week).
That was exciting news and it got me thinking that soon I won't be buying diapers anymore. The next box I buy may be my last!
The start of the school year and the transistions that happen this time of year always make me think. Deep, hard, complicated thoughts. It's the first time for this or that. Things are just beginning and feel brand new. But I also think about the lasts. The last night Benjamin slept with a pacifier. The last night I had to give Frances a bath. The last time Henry used a sippy cup.
It's hard to notice the lasts. You don't know they are the lasts when you do it. Sometimes you don't even realize it for weeks or months. They are hard to catch, and so bittersweet when you realize they have passed.
Have a blessed weekend friends!
