Why would you want to buy that much cream at once? Wouldn't it go bad, if they had not use it?

It was on sale for cheaper than the pint size, and I've had h&h stay good for a while, so I was willing to make the attempt. I put a lot of cream in my coffee. A lot, a lot. It probably would have lasted me about two weeks with regular use.

I guess it's good someone got to enjoy it, but not the point! Who takes food from a fridge when it's labeled?

You know how to label it from now on, right?

Would your initials somehow make others think it's fair game?

How long does quart&quart stay fresh? If people had not been taking some, wouldn't you have ended up losing some to spoilage anyhow?

Nope! People label things "share" when they're available for others.

I'm not sure why anyone would even be looking at the expiration date on half&half that isn't theirs to see if they can justify stealing it.

ctm re: quart&quart.

My husband leaves the door to his room open, but secretly I've been wishing it were closed until we have a reason to open it again. His door was next to ours, so it's impossible to enter my own bedroom without seeing his crib, the rocker I sat for hours with him in, his little outfits left out on his dresser that were too small to send with him. I haven't wanted to be in here until tonight.

I'm finally sitting in the rocker now, for the first time since he left. Everyone else here is asleep. Everyone else here has moved on. Our youngest still remembers his name, but he associates all unfamiliar babies with that name, now.

I have my first appointment with a therapist tomorrow. I'm anxious. I don't know how to define this anguish. It's a loss, but the grief is a selfish one. He will grow up with his own people. They'll probably love him, well enough. He will have a connection to the woman who grew him inside of her, even if he never knows her as his mother.

But to me, it's a death of a child. I've already missed his first birthday, and I'll miss many more. I'll never see his first steps. I'll never hear his first words, or get to hear him call me mom for the first time. I won't be there for his first day of school. I won't be blessed with any of the parenting labors of love. His entire life with us, one we secretly planned out despite knowing the risks, has been snuffed out. Is that not some form of death, even if only to me?

I'm beginning to wonder if I can go through this again. I know it's unlikely to unfold this way more than once; no one we've talked to had seen a situation like ours. And it's never been about us. We got into this knowing that adoption might never happen, and the goal has always been supporting families by loving children with no one and nowhere. But am I able to give any of that now with this relentless baggage bearing down on me?

Is giving only the remaining fragments of yourself more selfish than giving nothing at all, hoping to someday be whole?
