I hope that Charlotte calls me everyday when she grows up. My mom often used to say I told her everything even the stuff she didn't want to know. I wish for that openness between Charlotte and I.

I know it will be harder since neither one is 5 minutes up the road, but definitely will be worth every extra effort.
