A baby I've never met passed away today, and it just about broke my heart. Her mom is a nanny from my SoCal nannies group. Kaia was born in August and started having some medical problems recently. When I read the email this morning to say she was gone , I burst into tears. I can not imagine losing one of my children. I just want to hug and snuggle them, and I can't even think what these parents are going through.
So if you're the praying sort, say a little prayer for them. And then hug your kids and hold them close because life is often way shorter than we had planned it to be.
