I’ve had my eye on one of those “mom” necklaces for a long time. You know, the ones that have your kids’ birthdays engraved on them? They’re all over Etsy and Instagram; the ones that look like bars, stamped in gold and silver? I love the look of them, and I love the idea of having a piece of my kids with me at all times, because even though my kids are still little, I pretty much have daily breakdowns thinking about them growing up and leaving me someday (sob). But as it turns out, I don’t need a necklace to keep a piece of them with me — because they are already with me. Literally.
