Do I need to play catch up? Yes, but first I need to remember this gem.
We were playing with your dolls and I put the mommy in the rocking chair while the babies slept. "why is she there mom?" "because sometimes mommies watch over their babies while they sleep" "do you do that to me?" "yep" "good!"
Then as I tucked you in at night you pointed to the rocking chair and commanded me to "sit and watch me sleep."
Know this little one... I always will... You may not feel that I always understand you and I'm sure I won't. But I will always be watching for you. From the moment your heart began to beat beneath mine. I will be your watchman.
