I had a dream come true today.
This is going to sound so freakin’ corny, but I’m going to say it anyway. One of the images I had of myself as a mother was of being able to magically take away my child’s pain. From the moment I could do it, I kissed my baby’s “bo-bo”s. The image of the perfect mom in the commercials, putting on a Band-aid on their child’s arm, patting them on the head and sending them back out to play, seemed so amazing to me when I was younger. And now I am that mom.
Today, I put my first Band-aid on A-J. And with a kiss, all was right with the world. I am magical.
And it seems to be hereditary. When sitting on the floor after her bath tonight, A-J asked her Daddy if his back was sore. When he answered “yes”, she promptly got up and repeatedly kissed his back.
