A letter from your Momma on Mother’s Day

May 23, 2012 § Leave a comment

Dear Little Bird.  Dear Little Tiger.

I’ve written and re-written this letter too many times.  Let’s not complicate things.  I’m starting over.

I love you.  So much.  The love I have for you is so deeply rooted that it will never end. I’m yours.  I belong to you and you belong to me.  Always will be.  You can count on that.

This letter is simple.  But that’s the way I like things.

One more time for the record, I love you.

Spending an afternoon with Uncle Aaron helping him prepare his summer garden of green beans, peppers and cilantro.  Fun!

Lessons Learned

Dear Little Tiger.

You taught me two lessons today.

The first.  That lying to you about future immunization shots just might be better than telling you the truth (sometimes even I wonder what I was thinking…).

The second.  That hugs (lots and lots of them) really do make anything all better.

I love you little one.

Happy Birthday Elliot

Dear Little Tiger.

Happy birthday to you!  Four years old, huh?  Still making those funny faces you made as a baby.  Still and awesome snuggler.  Still super wonderful in every way.

We are luckier than lucky to have you as a part of our family.

We love you.

Our ride to school today

Dear Little Tiger.

Today we took our neighbor to school.  One of my favorite things to do is drive you and your buddies to school.  The conversations you have with each other – priceless.  Talk about zebras, Pennsylvania, flower girls, Despicable Me, yellow Easter eggs, and giggles – lots and lots of toddler-sized giggles.  Beautiful music to my ears.

You, on your own with your own friends, with no big sister around to boss you – it’s a treat to see your personality shine.  Makes this momma proud.

Playing in the snow

Dear Little Bird.  Dear Little Tiger.

Your very first time tubing.  Weather was perfect.  Snow was perfect.  Company was perfect (it was a good thing Auntie came with us – there was no way I was going to haul three tubes up and down that hill).  I didn’t expect you guys to love it so much – silly me.

We tested the hill out first by going down tandem.  But before long you insisted on going down the hill all by yourselves.  Wow.  Later you told me you were trying to knock down the man at the bottom of the hill.

Let’s do this again soon.

Dear Little Bird.  Dear Little Tiger.

Rainy day afternoon crafts are where it’s at!  And crafts that result in fancy, hand-crafted jewelry?  Even better.
