My daughters mom and I were really young when she was born. It was ugly then. But the way she handles everything now amazes me. I see friends in similar situations who never get to see their kid. I get to show up at their door with no warning and take my kid to the grocery store with me just because I want to. She sends her off with snacks and my favorite things to bring to me when she comes over. It's adorable. It's never a competition and no one keeps tabs. If someone needs something they get it. That's it. She always goes the extra mile to let me know she appreciates me too and I am not sure how I got so damn lucky. She is one of the kindest most patient people i've ever met. I appreciate her every day. If our daughter turns out anything like her mom, I will be so immensely proud. Just feeling grateful today.
