A Letter to Future Sippy Cup (11)

Hey kid,

Last night, at midnight, you woke up and told me you were hungry.

I prepared us a snack of deli slices, string cheese and a small cup of juice and officially introduced you to the concept of the "Midnight Snack".

Last night, we stayed up past your bedtime and talked.  We laughed at your silly jokes.  We planned the week ahead.  It felt as if we were the only two people in the entire world.

It is precisely for these kinds of moments, the little ones that are so often replaced in our memories by the larger occasions and milestones, that I started writing on this site.

By the time you read this, you probably won't remember last night.

But I will.

I cried. But that's probably because this mom is also pregnant.
