Mama, were you there when...

Something that came to me as I was drifting off to sleep. I was thinking I'd make it into a book for Acer. Feel free to alter words to fit your little ones if you want, maybe to go in their lifebook or something. Obviously Acer doesn't know how to do some of the things I'm saying we were there for, yet. I was just writing down milestones for the future.

Heather! That is so sweet. I've been trying to gather ideas for Lily's lifebook. Maybe I will do something along the same lines. Give Acer a big hug from me!
Love,
Monica
