4-year-old

‘When I saw my car for the first time since our accident, all I could do was shake like a leaf, and sob. I cannot believe my babies and I walked away from this.’: Mom urges car seat safety, ‘Make sure they’re safe EVERY time’

“We were t-boned while making a left turn, and pushed into a light pole. A few weeks before the accident, I posted a picture of the kids sleeping in my backseat. Someone commented and asked if Andrew, my 4-year-old, was still rear facing.”

‘Mommy, I’m ugly.’ She was staring at a photo of herself, sobbing. She tugged at her hair, begging it to grow.’: Mom says ‘genetics’ caused daughter’s lack of hair, paints it pink to prove she’s a ‘beautiful princess’

“My daughter who was just skipping about was now shouting, ‘Please take me home!’ I know her struggle because I, too, had no hair. I wanted to make her feel beautiful, so I bought a pretty hair dye. She anxiously giggled as we waited for the big reveal. When I finished drying it, she gave me a look that said, ‘Thank you, Mama.’ I’ve never seen her smile so big.”
