I loved mom. I always chased after her. Even when she goes to the bathroom, I chased after her and waited for her in front of the bathroom. When I wanted to talk with mom, I always touched her hand to make her look at me. I told her my thoughts a lot through my eyes, so she always talked with me.
After eating, I had to brush my teeth. When I saw my mom get my toothbrush, I jumped on the bed and waited for mom to brush my teeth. Mom always praised me and rubbed our cheeks together, saying, “Aiko, good girl.”
