I can't wait until...

I love watching my boys grow and savor every moment of it, but there are times, that I can't wait until they are old enough to do some things on their own.

Right now, the whole family is going through a bout of a stomach bug.  I can't wait until the boys are old enough to tell me they are going to be sick and actually understand the concept of vomiting in a bucket or toilet.  I have done like 8 loads of laundry, and I still don't have any clean clothes or bed linens.  

Also, bath time gets to be such a battle with DS1 and DS2.  I can't wait until they are old enough to bathe themselves.  Though, I am sure it will still be a battle to get them to take a bath.  

What can't you wait until?

    For my 2 YO, I can't wait for him to talk more and communicate better than just crying/fussing about any and everything that displeases him.
    ETA: I can't wait until he's old enough to just let him play in the yard with his sister/neighbor kids and I don't have to watch him like a hawk all the time!

    For my 6 YO, I don't know. She's at that age where she does lots on her own, but gives attitude about everything. That really takes the fun out of spending time with her. But of course she wants us to spend as much time with her as we do with DS. She doesn't understand that it's because we have to do everything for him. She's on her way to understanding though; I'm looking forward to age 8. But I'm sure once we get there, I won't like those challenges either.

    This is the same for me as well. Also, to understand the concept of time. I have to get DD up so much earlier in the mornings than is really necessary because she is so slow in the mornings and doesn't understand WE NEED TO HURRY OR MOMMY WILL BE LATE TO WORK!

  • I'm with you on the vomiting -- a couple of weeks ago, she was really stuffed and threw up phlegm 4 nights in a row --- let's just say, now we have really clean sheets! haha

    My almost 4 yo still hasn't grasped the meaning of "hurry up!".  Some days I feel like I have the pokiest children in the world.  They think it is hilarious to run around half naked while I try to get them ready and they have to do everything themselves - "I do it myself, mama!".  I want to pull my hair out at least two mornings a week!

  • I'm late to the party here but last night my girls (4 and 2) were able to spend forever in the bathtub playing with each other and over the last few months have really picked up their ability to play together for extended periods, today we sent them to the basement (finished) to play for a few minutes and the silence was heavenly.

    On the other side, my 4y/o doesn't understand hurry, she can stare at the object she's looking for and still whine for help, and who knows how old a kid has to be before they can wash their own hair instead of telling me to be careful and not get water in her face.....  so it's going to be a path of ups and downs!

  • I can't wait until DS sleeps better!  I don't think I have gotten 8 straight hours of sleep in over two years!

    Oh no, this is not what I wanted to hear! Lol. DD is the same way. It drives me crazy!

  • We have the same problem of peeing out the diaper.  We went to nighttime pull-ups, which works, but we still have problems during the day.
