It’s March already? Wow, time passes quickly. Life happens fast. I just remembered this evening that I’m 31 now instead of 30. I’m grateful for my youth still, but wonder where all the time went. Regarding the last nine and a half months, I’m glad the time has passed. I feel like a different person now. And Nick IS a different person now. But when will we be the people who are just going about living life again? Instead of the people recovering from a traumatic life event? I look forward to that shift. It’s closer now than its ever been. I can feel it coming.
Well I wasn’t going to blog about this, but I just can’t help it. I’m excited, and so is Nick. He is particularly stoked. I am writing this to make sure our young friends Sydney and Tiernan know that Nick beat them. They may be cuter than Nick, but he won the contest. He got done with wearing diapers first, just like he threatened that he would. It’s been about two weeks of experimenting now, and he’s found a great solution that doesn’t require the bulky, uncomfortable, embarrassing purple diapers. YAY!!!!! We’ve done a lot of joking about the “purple board shorts,” but I will never discount that needing to wear them as an adult could make anyone depressed. Nick handled the situation with grace and a smile, keeping his dignity in tact and never being too hard on himself. Again, another reason why I love him. We are so happy to be done with that phase. Shoot, I’m just happy it was a phase, and not a permanent thing. Sweet relief!!
