It’s just a normal Monday. You’re thumbing through your baby album, and as your eye catches each photo, you remember. More than that, you feel it. Everything about your child’s little-ness; the precious folds in their chunky baby thighs, the totter that happened right before they lost their balance in those days of early steps, the look they gave you when they knew they were being silly, the way you laughed and snuggled together. You can feel it, because it’s there, captured forever.
