One of the harder parts about blogging is coming up with a name. It has to be short, easy to read and have meaning to me. Easy enough right?
Think Think. Think
Hmmmmm. The blogs I follow all have clever names.
So I think some more….Nothingness …there’s my first writers block
A name … more like a phrase slowly creeps up on me. Tingling my fingers, taking over my senses, i close my eyes and let it cuddle warmly around my heart.
Always come back.
Here’s the story:
A few months ago my daughter had a massive meltdown at daycare where she could not be consoled — she wanted her mommy. Nothing could console her – hugs didn’t work, distraction didn’t work, snacks and new games didn’t work. It went on for over half an hour probably 45 minutes.
That night over dinner my two year old and I had a conversation about why she was so sad. I comforted her saying it was ok to be sad but reassured her that every day she’s at daycare mommy and daddy would ALWAYS come back for her ALWAYS
Next day was fantastic. Easy peasy drop off. Great day no major meltdowns.
Fast forward to a bad night with her up at around 1am crying. She ended up in our bed and after playing and giggling under the covers for almost an hour she started to settle back to sleep.
Slowly she snuggled into a blanket of sleep .
Then ever so quietly out of a few minutes of silence comes her sweet whisper of “always come back”. My husband and I look at each other and mouth “did you hear that”.
My heart melted.
It was the most comforting thing she had on her mind as she fell asleep.
I hope readers feel comfortable and always come back to read my blog
That’s my naming of the blog story
