Okay, just when I thought there were no more things left for me to get maternally emotional about.....I was wrong. My baby boy is in the bed, with a fever. I am doing what I've done since he was born. I am taking care of him. It occurred to me this may be the last time I'm the one providing this type of care. Soon I will pass the torch to Kenna. She is a bright, capable girl and I know she will do a good job. It is just so difficult to let go.
I posted the above on my Facebook status last night. My future daughter-in-law commented that she will never be as good as his mother, as that is a special skill that is only mine. I don't know if she was being honest here, or just trying to make me feel better as she knows I'm struggling with all the changes. Either way, she said the best, most absolute perfect thing and I love her for it!
