It was not her first haircut, but what a difference it made. A bit off the back and she goes from looking like a baby
to looking like a little girl
“I try to hold on to these moments as they pass”, sings Adam Duritz, and it’s become my mantra. I have to cherish the rare moments that will become ever rarer. When K is vacuuming and L panics, running to me and screaming for me to pick her up, I hold her close; she clings so tightly to my neck that it’s almost difficult to breath.
“Were you scared?” I ask.
“Tak,” she says, relaxing her grip and simply putting her head on my shoulder.
I’ll always want to hold her when she’s scared; I’ll only be able to for a few more years.
