Letter to My Daughter | Entry #1: Time

Hey my little goober.

I’m up and awake and I figured this is a good time as any to reflect on you – my daughter.

You are so sweet. You’re very smart and curious. You don’t know how to crawl yet, but you do get everywhere and into everything. These are times I’m going to weep for because I’m going to miss them so much. It’s going to devastate me. Time is vicious and I know these are the moments I need to treasure. I didn’t get much of a chance with your brother. There was so much stress, so much worry and conflict that I don’t remember most of it.

I can’t do that with you. I need to be able to remember what your cheeky grin look like from off the top of my head. I don’t want those memories to fade. I’ve taken so many videos and pictures of just the little things you do. I want to be able to remember those moments forever.

You’d think I’d be able to, but here’s the thing: Mommy is slowly, but surely losing her memory. They don’t know what’s causing it, but mommy is having a rough time remember important things. Don’t worry though, I’m getting it looked at.

Mommy loves you and your brother so very much.
