Was I prepared to release my grip on that autonomy? Now that she’s two, I’m tested more physically than emotionally.

By date four, we all went to a Dolly Parton concert with his parents and siblings in Maine. I never had time to shop for lacy bras, let alone shave my legs or wear glowy makeup. It was a little surprising, however, when she started calling him “Da-Da” around 11-months-old.
