Sky stayed home from school today with a cold and I had the morning shift taking care of her. While we were having a snack and playing outside, it popped into my head to try something. When she was playing and distracted I called her by her birth name. Her head whipped around towards me and her eyes got so big. She Remembers. I didn't expect her to forget, and I don't want her to, but we have no way of knowing how much she will remember from before. And she definitely remembers that.
Powerful. Poignant. A bit painful. Wow.ReplyDelete
