My blog name is now outdated. That pacifier? She gave it up weeks ago. Barely batted an eye. We said, “You don’t need this,” and she believed it. Like we knew what we were talking about, like we know anything.
She used to ask me to kiss her hurts, lately she just kisses them herself.
“Ouch. Aw better.”
So this is parenthood. This shift, this push, this pull, this constant changing. Ready or not…
“I love you, Baby.”
“Lo’ ‘ou, Mommy.”
