In preparation for ALICE’S FIRST BIRTHDAY (!!!), I decided to take a look at Tom’s “Life So Far” video that I made for him when he was turning 1 so I could do the same for Alice.

I was watching it on my computer, getting all sad that my baby boy is growing up so fast, and that the reason I was watching the video is because my baby girl is growing up fast too, and thinking about how I could convince Kevin we need MORE BABIES when Tom came in and caught me.

“What-chyou watching, Mom,” he asked.

“It’s your video,” I said.

“It’s baby Tom!” he said excitedly.

And we watched the whole thing together.

Then he said, “Again!”

And so we watched the whole thing together again.

Then he said, “I want to be a baby again.”

I said, “You want to watch it again?”

“No. I want to be a baby again,” he reiterated.

“Well…you can’t do that. We all grow up. I was a baby once, but now I’m a grown-up and you’ll do that too,” I explained.

Apparently unhappy with this startling news, he clinched his fists together, squeezed hard with all his might and began grunting.

“What are you doing,” I asked.

“I’m trying to turn into a baby,” he said.


It didn’t work.

He tried again.


Still nothing.

Still a grown boy of almost-3-years-old.

“I’m sorry you can’t be a baby again,” I said.

“That’s okay, Mom.”
