Year 1

I think this sums it up …

Another little girl says to my daughter, referring to my brother and his wife walking away from my MIL’s, “is that your mommy and daddy?” She repeated the question a few times.  My daughter finally said, in a hushed voice walking away from the girl (although she didn’t appear to be walking away because of the question, they were simply playing around in a jump house…but who knows), “my mommy is in heaven.”

No one but me heard what she said 🙁

    I follow your blog and I just feel compelled to write you. There was three degrees of separation between Cari and I. Family of mine knows Cari’s family and I actually received an email the day she passed because they thought that I knew her.

    I just wanted to tell you that there are people out there thinking of you, silent cheerleaders if you will. I know nothing anyone can say or do will ease your pain, but I just wanted you to know that you and your kids are in my prayers.

    Thank you very much for writing 🙂

    Please feel free to contact me if you ever needed to talk. I think our kids are the same ages so I can discuss such topics as Sprout vs Nick Jr, how did he get out of the crib that I know I just put him in, etc!

    Take Care
