The Small Moments

I sometimes forget how Allie is only 5. She sometimes has crazy amounts of wisdom to say this amazing stuff!

Today it was just her and I driving to swimming lessons. First she saw my pin with Logan’s picture on it and asked to kiss it before we left. Then she said “I just wish we could really kiss him again like Jojo! It’s not fair!”

“Yup sweetheart, mommy feels that exact same way.”

Then by about 2 blocks she’s forgotten and moved onto shouting her new count by 10’s she’d mastered in math and I thought our Logan talk off the night was done.

We make a turn I’ve made 1,000 times and I almost forget it’s right past where Logan is buried. Allie of course couldn’t fail to remember him even in the darkness where she can’t make out his headstone. She shouts “Goodnight Log-ey! I’m sending you a kiss on your head! Mommy where are you kissing him?”

“I’m blowing him a kiss for his cheek!”

“Ok, and I think he needs one for his lips to go to sleep!”

Little girl please never lose this sense of love! It is the best gift you could’ve ever given. Thank you for keeping your brother alive for me even just in these short moments. I love you both to the moon and back
