The first Valentine’s day after Maggie died, I got a small bear with heart candies and left it in Zilas’s car seat. At first he asked where it came from. I said I had no idea. He thought maybe it was his teacher or Mommy. I told him that it couldn’t be his teacher as the car had been locked. “It must have been Mommy”, he decided.
Ever since then it has been my tradition to leave a present, usually a stuffed animal, in the car for him.
This year he was very excited to get dressed and see what Mommy had left him.
I am happy to give him some magic in the world and to let him think Mommy is there for him. I truly believe she is.
