She didn't need me.

Nor ... in her independence ... did she want me.

Which made my heart swell up (and hurt a little, too).

Because everything is as it should be, whether I like it or not.


  1. Beautiful photos of Charlotte!! I'm struggling with letting go of babies and toddlers and post like this do not help :)!! My kids beg me everyday to have another baby......some days I almost say yes :)! x

  2. Oh Felicity! I don't know how I'll go without that love for squishy cheeks and pouty mouthes but I'm sure loving the things teenagers do too. They just don't love having the camera shoved at them ;)
