I haven't posted on this part before.
My dad died in oct of 08. I was 21. My son was born 7 weeks ago. My husband is working late and my mom had come to visit us today. It was a great day. Sitting here just holding my baby who is named after my dad. It just hot me really hard. I always think of dad but I try not to let it get to the horribly sad part. He had cancer and died in a hospital. I was right next to him. I was a daddys girl. Only child. He never met his grandson. It's tough. I also feel real bad when I moved out to have the baby with my then bf now dh. It just all comes in floods.
I just needed to write for a min. Thank you

I am so sorry for your loss.

What's wrong with being sad? If you didn't process it at the time, it will come out in floods, that's how grief works. He only passed away less than two years ago-don't feel there's a timeline that the world follows when grieving. Write letters to your dad, tell him how much you miss him, how you wish he could have known your LO, about your life. Its okay to miss him, its normal to feel sad now and again. ((hugs))

Lucky mother to five!
