There were celebrations starting early during the week (with doughnuts), and there were reflections on the baby/toddler he has been, and the little boy he has grown up to be in the last three years. He is so full of life, laughter & love.
I was always so careful with this boy, to always enjoy and savor every moment with him – because I’ve always thought or knew that he could be my last child. I used to stare into his eyes when he was a baby, and bond with him all day long. I can honestly say with no regrets that I have taken that time to enjoy him fully for the last three years, and now that he can talk and laugh and joke and love and delight, I do it even more these days. There seems to be a slight melancholy, and weight, when your littlest one has a birthday. Maybe it’s just me? It makes me think about years flying by and wondering what and where my place is in all of this. What I do know is how to celebrate. And what I do know, is that this little boy is mine and I am his. And I can provide him with endless love and guidance, and I can show him that the world is at his fingertips.
Des is a cautious boy, and a methodical boy, but he still seems to love everything messy! He loves textures and sensations and dirt and food. He loves to throw sand in his hair, dirt everywhere, and he absolutely LOVES to wear his food on his face!
If there are 101 uses of Huggies Wipes with #TripleClean layers, Des has found at least 100 of them. Reasons are endless! And with a now three-year-old, and a near six-year-old, I can’t tell you how often I need baby wipes even though I no longer have babies! When I brought home Huggies Simply Clean wipes, he was very excited to start using his new wipes! Scarlet used them on her baby doll. I guess that’s a 102nd reason right there to use #tripleclean wipes, even though I salvaged it for “real use”.
I keep Huggies Wipes in my purse and in the car. They have gotten me out of so many jams! And it’s not just the kids. There was the time I dropped my cellphone into a cupcake in the car. Wipes to the rescue.
