I – Independence
Posted February 10, 2015on:
Read about my ABC blog series here.
It comes with the age. All M wants to do is do things herself. She’s pretty adamant about it.
She insists on feeding herself now, which is a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing because it’s one less thing I have to take care of, but a curse because of the clean up.
She’s likes to brush her own teeth, comb her own hair, do her own morning routine.
God forbid, I try to help her.
It’s cute watching her try to exert her independence, but it is also a little heartbreaking. For the past three years, I’ve been her source for everything. She has been depending on me for so many things. M showing me that she can do so many things by herself reminds me that she’s growing up and is no longer my little baby anymore. I may be a bit over dramatic (I’ve been known for that) in thinking that she will soon no longer need me anymore.
It’s a rollercoaster of emotions.
Overall, I’m proud. I’m a proud mama. I know that I’ve taught her well enough to be comfortable in doing things on her own.
