It’s not even six and you and your Dad are already curled up in bed, asleep. This cold is just viscous. It is the first cold you have EVER had, a new experience for everyone. We’re not over protective parents in the least. We believe in giving you the freedom to experience this world around you, even if it means taking a step back and letting you do things like eat a little dirt. Yet, I can’t help to feel a little heart broken over the fact that you’re going to go through tough stuff in your life this cold being the first. You’re going to get sick, again, you’re going to have your heart broken, you’re going to even make some decisions at some point you wish you hadn’t landing you in hard places. Because it’s all part of the human experience. I’m not too worried about you though baby because if you turn out to be anything like your mama you’ll be as tough as nails. And I’m certain you will go through this life with me and your papa loving you so deeply you’ll have steady roots to grow into a strong person from. I hope you grow to know and trust when you have a tough time in life and the vicious of all vicious “colds” arise we’ll be here to snuggle you into dream land and help everything get better, forever, no matter how old you are.
