When did it happen?
Long 24 hour days full of endless 60 minute hours lost forever… to four short years.
Why can’t I remember it?
I feel as if I tried to touch this photo and all the memories locked inside, my hand would only find a hologram almost as if this image is a figment of my imagination.
How did everything change?
I vaguely recall piles of endless diapers and the bondage of diaper bags, strollers and miscellaneous gear– yet there is no trace of all that now… it as if the bicycles, puzzles and My Little Ponies have always been here.
What have I forgotten?
I can come to terms with everything except memories lost… I guess.
I have bits of video tape and a myriad of photographs– thank heavens! But as strange as it sounds, sometimes I feel as if I am an observer looking back for the most part.
How is that? I am the mom? This is/was my life?
Forgive my nostalgia…
I am sure it is rooted in the fact that my baby starts preschool next week…
And my mind is spinning around worrying that four years from now I will be asking the same questions…
Will I remember her sweet, unyielding kindness to others?
Gosh, I hope so.
