I didn't get that kind of warning when my first daughter was born. "Take full advantage. Offer ends July 5."
Born beautiful and perfect on March 19th, the center of my universe for 109 days, I went to pick Brady up at daycare on July 5, and her nap had never ended. She never woke up. Firefighters, Paramedics, Doctors and Nurses worked to restore life to her tiny body, but ultimately they decided they had done all they could do. Offer ends July 5.
I tried to have a talk with the manager, to see if I could get an extension on the offer. The manager said, "no." No matter how much time passes, and how many great deals I've gotten since, I'm still going to grieve over that really amazing, one of a kind offer that ended July 5.
I really miss my girl.
Please take a trip over to It's My Baby Blog for a post on SIDS info that is in memory of my dear Brady Judith.
