The cries I long to hear...

I have a slew of nieces (only 1 nephew) and the oldest one is turning 10 on Tuesday, and her birthday party was yesterday. I was so sick, but I've never missed any of their b-day parties, so I just drugged myself up the best that I could and went anyways (crossing my fingers and saying several prayers that noone gets the cooties.) Anyhow, my youngest niece is 17 months old and was crying "momma, momma, momma" over and over again, and my heart broke even through my drugged up/sick state.

I want someone to call me "momma"

I'm so sorry. I babysat my one year old nephew last night, and his cries for momma broke my heart, too. I thought that even though Jenna wouldn't have been saying that, she would have been soon.

I know what you mean. I told Kyle today at church that i wanted him to steal the baby that was across the isle. I wanted to hold and love that baby. It was a girl and only 9 weeks old. BUT I want a baby to hold and snuggle with.....

Oh Jen. I am so sorry. I long to hear those words as well.

I long to hear those words also. I hear my niece saying that to my sister and it just tugs at my heart.
