I really wanted to drown out my daughter’s cries. They were so grating and unpleasant and the fact of the matter was it was her naptime and she had to go to sleep.
My instinct was to grab my phone and numb myself from the pain of hearing her cries. But then I remembered how so many ppl have told me that this period of babyhood goes by so fast and is so precious. So I decided to take in her grating cries. One day—surely not today, but one day—I would no doubt miss them.
