PARENTING

so I never forget

This blanket. Her constant companion, her go-to when she’s sick. It’s one of those things I think I will remember forever (because honestly, it drives me crazy right now how much she thinks she needs it). But I know one day she will give it up and I’ll soon forget how much she loved it.

I’ll forget how she has a favorite corner (aptly nicknamed “Cornie”) and how she holds that corner up to her nose and sucks her thumb.

I’ll forget that prior to our trip to Uganda two years ago I knew I couldn’t ask her to fly across the world without her precious blanket so I cut it in half to save room in our suitcases.

I will probably forget how she always says it’s so soft and cuddly.

One day I’ll forget that my big girl once used to be a little girl so I take photos and write these words in hopes that I never forget.

P.S. I’ll be announcing the winner for the necklace giveaway tomorrow!

    So sweet! I saw a picture the other day of Lucy’s blankie which went missing but was much loved. It’s so special to remember how much it meant to them at this time in their lives!

    “I’ll forget that prior to our trip to Uganda two years ago I knew I couldn’t ask her to fly across the world without her precious blanket so I cut it in half to save room in our suitcases.” what a sweet memory. also, i love this exercise of writing out things we want to remember… such a good idea 🙂

      Thanks. Sometimes it’s hard to think I’ll forget these moments that occur every single day but I know it won’t take long and as she grows the memories will fade.
