I needed to pick up some little bowls with lids so I stopped by the baby department at Target yesterday thinking I might find some. I haven’t been through there in a while. The baby bowls are right next to the sippy cups so I thought I might pick up a few, seeing as how all of our lids have vanished over the past few months. But then it occurred to me: we haven’t been using lids, but nobody has been spilling their drinks. Which means that we don’t need lids anymore. Which means I have no reason to visit the baby department ever again.
I started to cry right in the middle of Target.
I really am glad to be done with all that baby stuff. But it was a big part of my life for the last 15 years.
Change is good. But still it makes me sad.
