Cassidy is the sweetest. Tonight she insisted that I tuck them in. I was busy busy getting things ready for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow, so I had said no a few times. She headed up, and I caved. I went up moments after her and, even though she saw me in the hall, scared her when I approached her bed. She said I scared her because she thought I wasn't coming to tuck them in. I told her I changed my mind. I explained to her that one day she won't want me to tuck her in anymore, that one day she won't even live here to tuck in, that one day she won't need me anymore. I proceeded to say some similar things to Takoda (including that one day he won't follow me everywhere, including the bathroom lol). And then... Cassidy burst out crying.
I went to comfort her and asked her why she was crying. My sweet baby girl said that she'll always need me, and that she never wants to leave me.
I explained to her that she was completely right. We are all family and will always need each other. Also, that she doesn't ever have to leave if she doesn't want to, that she can live with me until she's 60. But I also explained to her that one day she'll be ready for it, that she'll want to be on her own and live her own life, even though that's very far away from now.
All I know, is that I am so blessed and so loved and so happy with my life. And truthfully, if you knew my life... You would probably think there's a lot lacking to smile about. But you'd be so very very wrong. Thank you God.
