Today is my last day to pack her lunch.
Steak quesadilla, chips and salsa, celery sticks, applesauce, yogurt, and strawberry milk.
Today is my last day to get her ready for school.
Bath, hair, clothes, teeth, breakfast, and cartoons.
Today is my last day to take her to school.
Three point six miles.
Today is my last day to sign her in.
A kiss goodbye.
Today is my last day to go to school after dropping her off.
Counting down the minutes until I see her sweet face again.
Today is the last day I will visit her school classroom for a party.
No holiday, just a farewell.
Today is the last day I will sign her out of school.
Presents for the teachers monogrammed travel cups and a picture of A.
Today is the last day we eat what she wants to eat.
Rosies pizza, sausage only.
Today is the last time we will go see a movie for her.
Gnomeo and Juliet
Tonight is the last night I will rock her to sleep.
Slight jerking movements give me the sign.
Tonight is the last night she sleeps with me.
Kick me all night. Stay on my side of the bed. Forever. Please.
Tonight is the last night that I go to sleep knowing she is safe and being cared for.
Jesus watch over her when I can't.
