And then I cried a bit too, because this girl is magic.
"Clairegirl, do you know that I miss you when you're at school too?"
I remind her that she alone got to be the baby who would nap in my arms each day. I remind her of our adventures before the others came. And then I remind her of her magic.
"You, sweetgirl," I whisper. "You are the one who made me a mommy." And there is a tiny smile.
She skips out to the car, ready for another adventure. This one without me.
