Cora and I love watching the TV show "The Voice" together (or as she calls it: the singing show). Last night I had DVR'ed the show, so after Milly was tucked up in bed, Cora and I snuggled on the couch to watch a few minutes of The Singing Show together - both in our PJs and snuggled under the pink blanket her grandmother made for her. Cora had her two arms wrapped around mine, her head on my chest. She said "Mom I'm so excited for tomorrow" (I'm coming to her class to read a book and then staying for lunch). I said "I am too honey." She excitedly said "It's going to be the best day of my life." Then, turning her face to look up at me she very seriously said "Mom, I'm going to remember it forever." Then The Voice started and there was that amazing, haunting tribute showing the Newtown victim's names. And there were no words, and no helping the tears that poured out of my eyes.
