Uttered a really silly prayer while I was putting you to sleep –
I know you will not stay this tiny forever. I know you will not come crawling into my arms forever. I know you will not even need my cuddles forever. I also know that you won’t need me to fall asleep forever.
But I pray that when you need me I am there. And when you don’t – I make do with remembering how much you needed me once upon a time.
But I pray that when you argue with me, I manage to remember the innocence in your eyes that I see today. I manage to remind myself that you are still that little angel who gave me so much joy, by just letting me love you and care for you.
But I pray – that you choose to remember the best and look back at your childhood as one where your parents put you first in whatever they did.
