As I was dressing my baby boy this morning in my favorite jeans on him, I saw he had a hole starting on the knee of his pants. This is a huge thing for me! For most people the milestones in child development are things like first word, first step, etc. Now that my baby's no longer a baby (at least we won't say it to his face...he'll always be my baby) the milestones seem to be getting farther and farther apart. At least not happening every month. Because they just develop so quickly during the first two years of life, new strides take place often. When I saw that holy jean it meant my baby is a big boy. He roughs and tumbles and plays hard like the other big boys. That holy jean will go in the keep box as a token of his boy-hood.
Two hours later he marked them up with permanent green marker. So long favorite jeans! You were loved.
