I know there will come a day when she won't want anything to do with me. She won't want me to color Jubilee pages with her, share a blanket, or insist on eating food from my plate (even though she has the exact same food on her own). She won't lay in bed at night, clinging to my hand, and begging me to promise I will live with her when I am old. Sometimes, such devotion is overwhelming. It is tempting to insist she eats the food from her own plate without tasting mine, or to hide in the bathroom for a few minutes of solace.

But then I will take a deep breath, and remind myself that it won't always be like this. Someday, I will look back and long for the return of the little girl who just wants to be with her mommy. I remind myself to be grateful for the time we have right now.


  1. I'm sure you have many years of devotion (and space and time invasions) to come. I have 5 boys, and 3 are actually grown men *sigh*. It is amazing how fast time flies, and although they don't depend on me to do as much as I did when they were younger, they are still some of my greatest fans.

    On a side note, does Turtle have access to scissors again? LOL

  2. Lots of moments & fun to treasure. It does go by quickly but there are some many fun new things in store. Just stay in the moment and enjoy each one.


Awwww, you cared enough to leave a comment! Thank you so much for making my day :-D
