Celebrating the milestones of our children is a rite of passage for parents. We get collectively excited about the most talked about firsts – the first smiles, first coos, first solids.
We note the date of first teeth, first steps, and of course, the first day of school. Then there’s those personal, often bittersweet, milestones. They’re different for all of us, and can be heartbreaking. Or heart-warming.
The first time your baby girl doesn’t call for you through the night; when your toddler no longer needs the potty; the first night your little boy chooses not to sleep with his favourite teddy.
