Oh my goodness!! We've finally reached z. It's been fun, it's been exhausting, I'm glad I did it. Thanks again to all those who have joined my blog, and to everyone who left their wonderful comments. Happy blogging to you all. :)
One time-saving tip I'd like to share with any new parents or parents to be out there... pick zippers over buttons (at least for the first few months).
I can still remember one of the first times I attempted to put one of those darn button-up sleepers on my little sweetheart... I had NO idea what I was doing. I buttoned up buttons but there were holes and gaps and it came out like a mishmash of material more than cozy pajamas. Add a squirmy baby to that and frustration meddles with time-consuming.
I actually had to rummage through my stack of baby clothes to study how the buttons fit together. It might have looked easy in theory but putting it together in practice was no simple task. From then on zippers were my best friend and buttons were my undefeated enemy.
Fortunately, practice makes perfect and patience is key. Thankfully my darling daughter had enough patience to keep her movements to a minimum while this mommy fought tirelessly to figure out those darn buttons.
But now, my oldest sweetie is almost two, and the zipper and the buttons are on equal ground, at least for me. The war of the buttons is not over though, it has claimed a new victim... my daughter. She too has gracefully mastered the art of zippering. It's just the complicated function of the button she has yet to figure out. But I have faith in her. If this mama can do it, I know she can!
