My darling daughter I’m doing the best I can.
Forgive me for shrieking in your ear when you grab a handful of mommy’s hair that had been worn in a ponytail or bun and hasn’t been down since you were born. How you seem to find the tiniest of hairs I’ll never know.
Forgive me for inconveniencing you when I tried to wear you during the day so that I could get a few things done around the house. The screams and tears for 45 seconds were enough to figure out that wasn’t going to work.
Forgive me when you are cranky after napping a total of 40 minutes all day even when I took you out for a car ride and carriage ride. Since it was raining we frequented Target, Marshall’s and Winners. I swear my face is now on their ‘beware of’ list as we do the same route every rainy day. If a loss prevention officer stops us I’ll explain how you liked to be rolled to sleep.
Forgive me if I’m not as excited tonight when after your diaper has been changed, you’ve eaten and were bathed, you still would not go to sleep. You see I have been running a fever all day long and the doctor says I have bronchitis. Don’t worry I’ll still love you to the moon and back.
Forgive me my darling daughter I’m doing the best I can….
