    You are wise to try to hold on to those memories, or at least make them stick a little more. It all goes so fast! I can’t believe you’ve got five children. I missed that somehow. Eli is a senior this year, and though I struggle valiantly to hide it, I’m in permanent mourning. I don’t want any of them to go. But go they must, and my job is to make them feel secure and good about going, even though it’s the last thing in the world I want. This is something about motherhood you don’t understand when you are snuggling infants. Not true, actually, the first loss is birthing out the baby inside you to have the one you hold in your arms. Sigh. Have a great tomato-tasting day!
