One day I will be in my 60’s and you in your 20’s and I will look at you and remember a night like tonight.
You are almost 18 months old and you just fell asleep on my lap while I rocked you in the rocking chair.
This hasn’t happened in quite sometime and never in the room you have been sleeping in.
While I rocked you, I thought about how when I was pregnant with you, these were the moments I daydreamed about.
I thought about how fast time is going and how big you are getting.
I cried and held onto you as long as I could because I know that I can’t hold onto you forever.
I love you ratinha with all my heart and soul.
