In the darkness of yours and your sister’s room, the two of you are piled onto my lap as I am slowly rocking you to sleep. There is no sound other than your sister’s mobile’s music, playing softly in the background. Out of nowhere, you say:
You my best friend Mama. Never never.
(You’re my best friend Mama. Forever and ever.)
And that, my sweet girl, made this overall crappy day, one of the best I’ve had so far.
As my heart filled with love, tears filled my eyes and I hugged you closer. You sure know the way to your Mama’s heart! I hope to remain your best friend forever and ever too ma Cocotte!
