Day 13 - a fictional book that is meaningful to you since your loss.
Water Babies by Charles Kingsley
I read this book as a child, but it wasn't until Florence was born that I really thought of it again.We received a card from a friend with the following quote on it from the book:
And... one moonlight night, the fairies came flying in at the window and brought her such a pretty pair of wings that she could not help putting them on; and she flew with them out of the window, and over the land, and over the sea, and up through the clouds
That reminded me of the book, and last year I read the book again, with an adults view. The book will always be associated with Florence for me now.
On another note,thank you so much to everyone who left comments or emailed me after my last post about our breastfeeding woes. I was so surprised by the response.
I'm very lucky in many ways, I have great support from my local LLL friends, and from my family, and if it's possible to get Ernest breastfeeding then I'm certain I will, if it's not then we'll carry on as we are for as long as we can.I'm sure I'll keep you all posted. x
