Since moving to Kentucky, I fell in love with a program on the Style Channel. The program is called Clean House. If you’ve never seen it before, they take people who are clutter fanatics (and man there are some that are so nasty) and help them clean out the clutter, sell the stuff in a yard sale, and then give them a makeover in the rooms they cleared out.
Well, they have a couple of shows that came from the original called Clean House: Search for the Messiest House in the Country and Clean House Comes Clean. Clean House Comes Clean is more of the outtakes and stuff they didn’t show in the original episode aired.
Tonight I watched the Comes Clean one and they had a baby episode one where there were parents who were expecting a new baby. The second couple in the episode ended up having a baby on July 16, 2008. I was completely taken aback. For those of you who don’t know, that’s the EXACT day Mari passed away.
Over the years I think we all hear about how one life ends and another begins. Well, this was like a slap in the face. My baby girl’s life ended and this new little one’s started. I know that there are going to be many other babies that happen to be born on that day as well but this was a baby that was tangible. They even showed pictures of the new little one and then showed an updated with the baby now being about a year and a half old.
I was amazed I didn’t cry. It’s just strange how at any moment you can have something that brings it all back to the forefront.
I love you, Baby Girl, and Mommy misses you very much.
