You lost your first tooth this week, my darling. It broke my heart.
I’ve been through this before. I know what’s coming now. Your teeth fall out… your smiles change… you get grown-up faces.
I loved having you in my bed. I loved feeling your hot breath against my neck and smelling that baby smell that can make a mother weep. Your soft, sweet skin against mine sent a sensation of pure bliss through me.
And there isn’t anywhere else on earth I would rather be, my precious angel, than wrapped up together with you in a soft bed of love.
It will never be the same now; I know it and reluctantly accept it, but I keep those memories of snuggling with you close to my heart, my baby boy.
Thank you for giving me such incredible joy.
I will love you forever,
