After a busy swimming class I tucked my baby girl in to bed tonight, and like every other night I said
‘Snuggle down, straight to sleep’
She replied with
‘Cause you and daddy won’t leave each other will you?’
Needless to say, we had a good chat about how mommy and daddy love each other and always will and how we’ll always be her mommy and daddy and we’ll never leave her, ever.
I’m not sure what prompted this little chat, could be many things, we have a recently divorced neighbour and also a family member going through a separation or perhaps it was something said at school or a story that was read or a tv programme watched. I don’t suppose I’ll ever know.
It makes me so sad that on top of all the loss that baby girl has suffered in her short little life already, she still anticipates that there may be more.
Needless to say I’ve told my husband that no matter how unbearable a wife I may become, he’ll just have to put up with me, I promised her you see!
