Milestones…what a wonderful thing. Independence is a skillset we all learn and eventually we don’t even realize we do it. When your kids start getting dressed by themselves, going potty, it feels closer and closer to them learning how to do things for themselves. Adding getting their own snacks, it’s genius to the list.
Usually after breakfast, I’ll get to sit down and try to drink my coffee then they ask for snacks. Or whenever I think I might get to sit down, it’s snack time. When Olivia was able to get her own snacks from the fridge and Carter got his cereal bars from the snack pantry, i realized that I can finally not get up every few minutes for snacks for them…hooray for milestones!
