I've been sat watching my daughter sleep for the past hour. She's such an innocent little thing. She knows nothing of the pain and heartache she will one day endure. This breaks my heart to know that one day she will cry because she is sad, because she has lost someone dear to her, because she has had her heart broken.
I want to protect her forever but nothing lasts forever (except the fact that she's grounded for the rest of her life).
Without experiencing these things I guess she won't grow as a person. All I ask is that life is kind to her.
See, I can't be a sentimental old sap sometimes.
