A reminder beeped on my phone this afternoon. It was for an event I had completely forgotten about. It was probably added, along with one other, about two years ago. It was likely one of those days I was back at work after bringing home my girls from DRC. I was likely missing them and feeling kind of desperate and anxious about all the time apart, all the years of missed firsts and missed regular stuff and yikes! time goes so fast now that they’re home. So I did some math and made up some big days we could share and it turns out today is one of them!
This little girl has been with her forever family just as many days as without. We’re even! Tomorrow she will have spent more time with me than waiting for me. She wanted ribs and ice cream sandwiches to celebrate. First words and steps and first tooth, missed, but we have a once in a lifetime we’re even day! Today is awesome!
