How Could I Ever Forget You?
During dinner the night before my first day, Merritt seriously asked me, "Momma, will you remember me tomorrow!" As my heart began to break, I quickly reassured her that of course I would remember her! Merritt quickly replied, "What about next week, will you remember me then?" Still quick to answer I said, "Merritt, of course, I will remember you next week!" Still experiencing a breaking heart, I wondered how in the world can I get out of this job commitment! Merritt then asked, "What about next month, will you remember me then?" Determined we were headed to therapy, I replied, "Yes, yes, I will remember you next month!" She quickly replied, "Well, what about next year?" "Merritt, I will remember you as long as I am on this earth!" I replied as my heart completely broke, wishing Scott were home to pick up the pieces!
Merritt then said, "Knock, knock!" Glad we were on to a new subject I happily replied, "Who's there!" With a devilish grin on her face, Merritt replied, "See, you already forgot me!"
