…a pinhole look into the life of one not-so-ordinary girl.
once you have a child, you feel completely entitled to live forever; it is not too much to ask. the love you have for them is as infinite and deep as if all the love of all the parents from the beginning of time dropped straight into your heart. you feel as if your own love for your child has never been matched by another for theirs. when you look into their face for the first time, it’s instantaneous; faster even than the speed of light. i swear.
and like the roots of an ancient tree, it keeps growing stronger and wider and deeper with age.
