I’m thinking about the time when I first nursed Logan. He was 10 days old and the only step left before he would be discharged from the NICU was for him to breastfeed. I remember not being sure how to hold him, and the nurse showing me how to put a pillow on my lap for support and how to get him to latch on. It was at that moment that the thought came to me, “Wow, this is a first. I can’t remember when I last did something for the first time.”
Now 3 kids and 4 years later, I can breastfeed without thinking about it, but that first time will forever stand out as a first-time event.
Today I had a first time event too. I took Logan to school.
Normally daddy takes him since he works there, but today he wasn’t feeling well and needed a little extra sleep. I have picked him up before but never taken him, so I put a video on for the girls, got Logan ready, and headed out with just him. Actually, I can’t remember the last time I went out with only Logan. Ha.
With daddy he goes on the scooter, but of course I don’t drive (cause the only things I can drive well are bumper cars), so we got an auto and made it just as his teacher was arriving. Perfect. And on the way the thought came to me, “This is a first-time event. I should blog about it.”
Hopefully I will have more first-time events that stand out like these, and I hope I can recognise them and remember them.
When is the last time you did something for the first time?
