I was so excited when Braden’s little umbilical stump dried up all the way and fell off. The belly button revealed by that disconnection of tissue was so clean, new and ultra kissable.
He seemed unimpressed by the whole ordeal.
And I was left with a weird decision… What the hell am I expected to DO with this little piece of, well… “baby jerky?”
My first thought was that I’m sure people would expect me to throw it away. My second thought was that I couldn’t bring myself to throw away this little piece of his body that had once connected him physically to me.
And so, almost 2 years later, I still have it.
I’ll file it under miscellaneous body parts of his that I’m going to save.
Like the hair from his first haircut back in May 08. 😉
Do you save pieces of your kids? I’m not really THAT weird, right?
