No longer do I need to panic when the liquid Panadol or Nurofen runs out.
This may not seem like much to you, but it's a milestone for me.
(Why, yes, I DO lead a very quiet, uneventful life, as a matter of fact, thanks for asking)
They also no longer want Happy Meals, which means we are slowly (but surely) emptying the house of McToys.
Again, might not seem like a big deal to anyone else, but I'm LOVIN it.
I remember being almost delirious with joy when they all finally got big enough to get in and out of the car themselves, and take care of their own seatbelts.
I am thrilled that I no longer have to struggle with putting on Small Persons' shoes (although the Shoe Battle is far from over.)
They can get their own drinks of water and make a sandwich (can't seem to put anything away yet, I've noticed) and they can run a DVD better than I can.
Bit by bit.
