Day 23 - Frame

I had to lower the mattress in Lil Man's crib yesterday. I had this crazy twisted set of feelings when I did so; a combination of pride & happiness in his growing and getting bigger, and a profound sense of sadness that he is moving beyond infant/baby stage. As his Gigi I can only remember what it was like to feel this with his dad...but I was so consumed with being a single mom and just getting him safely through each day, now my heart feels these things not only for myself, but especially for my son & daughter in-love as they go through this firsthand.
