Toddler

I was sitting in training while at work two weeks ago and we were reviewing pediatric emergencies. As is always standard practice at the beginning of a training on that subject matter we review the age/category breakdown of kids, since there are wide discrepancies on treatment protocol from a 3 month old to a 3 year old. We began with preemie, then neo-natal, then newborn, then toddler, then….wait a minute. How did you define toddler? You say that the child must be 12 months old and walking on their own? That sounds awfully familiar to Ezra. You mean to tell me that he isn’t a baby anymore? He is actually a toddler now?

  1. I had this moment a few weeks ago when Brady said, “Baby sleeping” while pointing at a baby in a stroller. I usually make some comment about how Brady is similar in age or smaller than said baby (which is usually the case – for a while Brady called all kids “baby”), but that day it hit me…he’s not a baby anymore. I was a bit sad about it.

  3. A toddler, huh? Does teenager come after toddler? I hope you are having fun visiting Mommy at school again. I am sure her students from last year vie for a chance to see him.
