I had to share this beautiful moment from earlier tonight, even if just so it’s stored away somewhere, a back-up against unreliable memories, worries and useless facts.
Baby girl and I were watching The Babysitters Club on Netflix. When it first came out I was excited: I thought it’d be a good thing to share with baby girl, and I could relive the book series I loved so much all those years ago.
It HAS been a good thing.
Watching a scene tonight between Dawn and her mother, baby girl turned to me lovingly, with a wistful look in her eye:
“Mama, when I grow up… I can’t wait to look after you.”
Before adding sweetly “now you tell me that when you grow up, you’ll look after me!”
Darling, I’m getting there. I’m still trying to ‘grow up,’ whatever that means. ❤
