Now that the babies are much happier, its been easier to get out and run errands. The sight of Easter dresses, baskets, and all the girly spring items still hurt.

The continuous talk of Disney’s new movie Frozen, and the overabundant Instagram pictures displaying every single little girl I know holding their own copy, simply reminds me of what’s missing in my life. It also makes me think about how different life would be if we had a five year old girl running around our home.

I was surprised when the tears began flowing as multiple people referenced kindergarten registration… I should have a kindergartener this fall. I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education, and spent many hours in kindergarten classrooms before Preslee passed away. I made mental notes of what to do, and what not to do, to get her ready for Kindergarten. I guess its just another big milestone I had looked forward to, and am forced to let go of..

Pat and I have been doing a little spring cleaning, and decided its time to take on some of Preslee’s items packed away in colorful tubs in our basement. After avoiding them for over three years, just thinking about opening them up gives me anxiety. I know once we’re finished I’ll be happy we did it though. I plan on finally making a blanket out of her clothes. If any of you have done this, I’d love to see a picture of your blanket. I’m looking for some ideas.
I’ll be honest, grief won today… Here’s to a better day.
