Always, always know that I love you beyond measure.
Over and over, you proclaim, "I do it myself." If it's a five step process and I've started it for you and am three steps in, you'll undo those three steps to earn full credit for requiring no help.
I'm always so proud to watch you try so very hard. You know the good feeling of accomplishment and you know the pride behind effort. Independence aside, when you say, "Hold me," I will embrace you with so much love.
