Haute Mom Dilemma #46 ~ On the Run

Everyone warned me not to wish that Stella would walk. We watched her day after day take her first step, then two, then three and it felt like the slowest movie ever. Next thing we knew, her three cautious steps one day turned into walking right across the room. Stella was officially a walker and I was now officially the chaser.

My mommy friends said it happened over night and they were right. I always thought it was cruel to have kids on a "leash" but I must admit, the other day I caught myself gazing longinly at a mom next to me holding onto a backpack "leash" attached to her kid. It is tough to chase the little one around and now that she has found those legs, she no longer wants mommy to hold her.

It has been so fun to watch her confidence grow with each step. Her falls seem to be harder on me than they are on her. I am sure running is right around the corner. At least I am burning some extra calories along the way!
