No more manicures for my 4.5 yo son

The other day, I come home and my husband tells me that our son cut his own fingernails. I was happy that he can now do it by himself which is a good sign that he is growing up but at the same time, I have gotten to really enjoy sitting with him on my lap, cuddling really close, holding his little hands, and cutting his little nails. It made me think of all the other things that he will eventually grow out of like running to the door everytime I come home from work to greet me, wanting me to read him a bedtime story, wanting me to stay in bed with him for "just a little bit" but then I end up sleeping with him the whole night. One thing I won't miss though, is having to help him wipe his bum.
