To my daughter, whose brother needs a little more attention
Remember when I said “I wish I could split myself down the middle”, so I could be with you and your brother at the same time? I meant it with all my heart.
But unfortunately, I don’t possess that ability. It’s ok to get frustrated, sad, put out and even angry. Honestly, sometimes I feel all those things too. I may pause or take a little linger to meet your wants and needs and I am sorry for that.
You may not understand all of what I write, but I promise someday you will. You are a gift. Mommy and Daddy were so lucky when you arrived. You are our first. This is your title to hold always. There has been and will be moments when you won’t feel it, but baby girl know it! Always know you are loved.
We were lucky again when your brother came along, a little boy to be loved by all. Little did we know he would flip our world upside down and teach us all how to look at the world differently.
