I Couldn't Have Said It Better

There are a few blogs I check in on regularly, and Dooce is one of them.  A reader mentioned the blog to me in passing, and when a girlfriend of a girlfriend recommended it shortly thereafter I knew I had to look into it.  Dooce has been up and running for five years and the author’s got a two-year-old daughter and a razor-sharp sense of humor.
Every month, Heather (the blogger) writes a letter to her daughter, and even though her daughter’s much older than Maddie I find Heather’s words express things I’m feeling much better than I’d ever be able to.  This month’s letter is for her daughter’s second birthday, and hit on a subject I’ve been thinking about a lot - no, not the constipation, though that’s discussed as well!  I’ve been mulling over the deep desire I have to make sure my daughter knows, down in her bone marrow, that I’m there for her and always will be.  I want it to be something she never questions, like the Dallas Cowboys are for my husband.
At any rate, click here to read for yourself.
