It seems like only yesterday, I was there for everything. Including “Tubbie Time.” Sure I knew that this like everything would end. And to be perfectly honest, I wasn’t all that upset when I could just “keep an eye” on her rather than having to bathe her. I managed to stay much more dry that way.
But, I didn’t expect to be tossed away quite as quickly as I have been. She has now reached the age where she needs privacy.
Not only is Daddy no longer needed for bathing, showering, getting dressed, etc. But now, I am not even wanted in the same room during these events (nor is TheWife, it is not a male/female thing, she needs her privacy from everyone). Yes, I knew this day would come. But I never expected it to be so dramatic… or so soon.
Isn’t there a way to just slow ’em down sometimes? Do they have to keep growing up so dang fast. Am I going to be completely unneeded by the time she is 7? Am I “all washed up” already? I really hope not.
I am so never going to hear the end of it if she ever finds out I put her naked picture here.
