"I have this auntie, this auntie, this auntie, my uncle this and that, this cousin and this and this and I have my granddad and my grandmother and my nanna, and this and that friend"
Tonight she mentioned every single person in her life... grandparents, aunties, uncles, old friends, cousins, neighbors, U.K. family and even "the funny man" and all of our lovely new Aussie friends.... she was happy and very appreciative.
My heart on the other side, broke into a million pieces. This little talk to her self in bed after I tucked her in, was the result of processing the fact that "daddy" is not here in her life.
I can deal with all the solo-parenting tasks. I can and would do them a million times if only I could avoid this.
My darling girl, you are brave, strong and wonderful. Oh how I pray that you will forever be okay
