Beauty and the Beast

I thought my crying in the supermarket days were behind me; I thought I always knew what to expect there. I thought I'd learnt for the most part to steel myself (on the outside at least) around the pink and girly things. 

Then today this bit me on the bum; 

I don't know whether it was seeing my baby girls name when I didn't expect to, or the moment where I imagined the world where she was here and I could've made a big deal of buying her really special pyjamas with her name on. A moment in my head when I imagined they would be her favourite pyjamas. 

Of course the moment led to a lump, and the lump led to my eyes brimming. My Beautiful Belle can't have a favourite anything.

When did Beauty and the Beast make such a comeback anyway? After all it was a classic Disney from my childhood, probably getting on for twenty years or more since it was originally released...

Maybe your precious little lady is showing you she is always around you and with you? Nothing wrong with crying in a supermarket especially around Christmastime. Sending my love and hugs my friend xxx

Love, Shabbs xx

Ach, that must have stung... a lot. I can see the layers of sadness to it, seeing the name, not having your baby girl to buy it for, not having your baby girl... sometimes it's the very small innocuous things that can knock you off your "OK" perch.
Definitely cry, definitely allow yourself to feel the sadness. it IS sad. But tomorrow is another day and it will hurt a bit less tomorrow and a bit less the day after that... not much consolation I know. Why can't we just all get what our heart wants, if it doesn't hurt anyone else?! Life is so unfair sometimes. Chin up sweetie xx
