The last day of preschool is one thing–poignant, and easy to see coming–but what about the last time your toddler uses your favorite adorable mispronunciation? The last time you step on a LEGO? The last time a kid needs your help in the bath, crawls into your bed in the wee hours, or reaches for your hand on the sidewalk? Those lasts happen without our knowing, and motherhood his filled with them.
In Episode 166 of The Mom Hour, Meagan and Sarah talk through the “lasts” that we’ve experienced through all different ages and stages, and share some amazing contributions from our listener community. Join us!
