to my lydia beth –
The most interesting thing happened this morning. I woke up, got dressed, went to your room, opened your drapes, and sang to you. I have been singing to you every morning since you were born. As soon as the sunshine (or clouds) fill your room, I sing “You Are My Sunshine.” Today, as I was doing this routine behavior, it dawned on me that I have been doing this for almost two years! Something that started so simple has morphed into a special time for us both. You absolutely love it! The minute my hand touches your drapes, you are on your feet swaying back and forth. I sing your song, and suddenly we’re enjoying a beautiful and special moment.
i love you a million & one – mama
