Since when could a bottle of this reduce me to tears?
Is it because it represents a whole year and the passage of time?
Is it because every time I wash your hair I think you are just one day older?
Is it because I know that so soon I won't be washing your hair and giving you a bath every night ?
Is it because one day I know I won't lean over to smell your hair and it won't have that sweet baby smell?
I hate the feeling that time can slip through my fingers and I will never be able to relive those sweet baby moments with you.
I know that growing up is inevitable.....I know that I am being nostalgic. It's my right as your Mother. I just wish that sometimes it didn't hurt so much.
