A special promise

This afternoon I brought Cooper to his room for a nap. He was tired but he didn't want to nap and tried to wiggle out of my arms in the rocking chair where we start put naps and bed time. He even signed "all done" three times to make his point. But mommy knew he needed a nap so I stood up and held him close and began to dance with him and I looked him in the eyes and said "Let's dance." and he smiled. I told him "We will dance today and we will dance on your wedding day. Deal?" He smiled again and then put his head down on my shoulder and fell asleep.

I love him so much. I fight for him. I will live for him. Nothing and nobody can take me from him. That's all.

  1. There is nothing like the love for a child. Nothing. I draw every strength I have from my children and I believe though I gave birth to them, that they give me life. You can do this Julie.

    Love
