Big Girl has an iTouch. It is actually turning out to be a wonderful communication tool for us. We’re both people who find it easier to write than to talk. The other day I sent her the following text as she was getting ready for bed:
I will come give you a hug. Do you feel like I spend enough time with you? Do you feel how much I love you or am I too grumpy all the time? It is very hard to be in my head. You know how I tell you to get out of your head? I need to do that, too but it is really hard. Very bad things happened to me when I was little, and it messed me up. But I hope not so much that you can’t tell how special you are to me and how much I love you.
I got back the best text ever:
Of course not. I know you love me more than all the moon and the stars in the universe and beyond.
Best text EVER.
