Did You Just Say “Mop”?

Bedtime…. the usual way, I pat her leg, sing a song and stroke her hair. But last night…

She said “mop” and removed my hand. She meant “enough“.

Did you just say “mop“?

Yes she did. And it pinched my heart, a bit. Was she trying to say that Mama’s service isn’t needed anymore?

I know…. very soon, I’ll be hearing more of these words… Just hoping when that day comes, I’ll be able to accept the truth that my daughter is no longer a baby.
