Yesterday my mother-in-law kept Lorenzo, my 2 year old for the morning.
Claudia was in school.
Mommy was at home falling apart.
I rarely have time for tears. I'm busy being the mommy to two small children.
But yesterday I just sat and wept and relived the summer.
I miss my mom so much...
Last night after Claudia's bath, with dripping wet hair, she started sobbing. Break your heart sobs.
With alarm I asked her what was wrong, between big gulps she squeaked out, "I want my nana."
I gathered her in my arms to comfort us both and asked her why she wanted nana.
"I want nana to color with me and paint with me."
A sadness seeped deep in my heart, a knowledge that nana will never again paint or color with Claudia. Something so simple, yet so important.
I tried my best to comfort her and promised I would paint with her today.
Today I have a date with Claudia to paint.
