Today I had one of the most difficult moments of my 12-year mommy career.
This afternoon Maddie told me she doesn't want to wear her hearing aid anymore...she wants real ears, 'just like you.'
Later, when I told Shad about our talk, he said it so simply, 'We knew this day would come sooner or later. I just didn't think it would be this soon.'
Yeah. Me either.
The simple fact is, I wasn't prepared. Oh, I've thought about what I would say to Maddie about her ears when the time came - about how God made her special...that he had something amazing planned for her life and how not everyone gets to be as special as she is.
But when I started to say those words, it just didn't seem like enough.
