This is a little bit of a love letter to Darci. I hope you’ll indulge me for a second for doing this in public, but there were no Mother’s Day cards in the store that quite fit the “you’re so awesome and your quick thinking and instincts saved our daughter’s life” vein. Not even the ones that play music.
You’re freaking awesome, momma bear (to steal one of Nichole’s phrases).
I’m truly blessed to have such an amazing woman in my life. Not only smart enough to rip my arguments to shreds in areas you’ve never even studied (like theoretical physics), but strong enough to handle two days of wondering whether or not your baby daughter was going to survive without turning into a gibbering wreck.
You truly are fantastic, and amazing, and the best mother I could imagine for my child. You are awesome.
I love you sweetie.
… and Alexandra owes her life to your quick thinking.
