Tonight we will part ways...forever. This is a bittersweet moment for me because of our love/hate relationship. I fought so hard at nap time and bedtime to keep you off of me only to fall fast asleep as you enveloped me in your puffy, cotton warmth. I resented you for holding me back...well, on my back. But, as I toss and turn in my bed tonight, I realize that being on my stomach sucks! I hated hearing how I resembled the kid in A Christmas Story, or a starfish, or a cotton ball, etc.
You were such a part of me for so long, half my life! But, I have outgrown you...literally. I'm not the newborn you once knew. I'm an infant now, and I must move on to bigger, better things. So, goodbye, sleepsuit. Thank you for all the good times we shared. Thank you for keeping me warm, for keeping me safe and for helping me sleep through the night since I was 10 weeks old.
