They’ll never know the bad dreams we fight. We will protect them until the end, making sure they feel the same love we do for life. We will learn from our own parents’ mistakes and never make them feel like they need to be a certain weight or a certain personality type. We will wrap them in the coziest fleece blankets at night and hold them close to our chests until they drift off to sleep. And if the nightmares ever seep into a part of their lives, we will risk our own lives to fight them off.
