2 In Letters to Our Children

Letters to Our Children {May 2014}

Late, but better late than never, right? Small group this month, but don’t miss Barb’s Letter to her sweet babies! She is up next in the circle.


Dear Delia,

I’m a little late with the May letter, but I’m guessing you won’t notice since you guys aren’t really big enough to read them anyway. I’m writing this letter on June 9th, so your 6th birthday was just a few days ago. This morning you told me that you are so much stronger now that you are six. I love the way that six year olds think. You have accomplished so much already in your short six years. I love that every big (and even more so small) moment is being documented in your life. While you aren’t always so happy to have my camera around, I know that one day you’ll treasure those pictures as much as I do. I hope so anyway.

In the past year, you’ve learned how to tie your shoes, ride a bike, blow bubbles with gum, hula hoop, swim using “big arms”, grown an extra tooth (while keeping the baby one….now that takes talent!), make a “donut” with your body….thanks to gymnastics, cross your eyes, flare your nostrils, blow up a balloon….and I’m sure there are more that I’m forgetting. Anyway, all of these accomplishments, no matter how big or small, one truth rings true. I’m proud of you little girl. You are growing into an amazing, caring, sweet, talented little girl. I get teary eyed just thinking about you. You have a kind and giving heart and such a loving soul. A bit whinier than considered pleasant at times, but I’m hoping you’ll grow out of that stage. I’m sure it is hard growing up with two brothers.

Just today you wrote me a sweet letter, then later I found out you had written daddy a very similar letter. It went a little something like this: “Dear Mommy, I love you so much. You are so sweet. Saem as Daddy.” (complete with typo). You are always thinking of others and writing sweet little letters. I’ve found ones you have written to your brothers too. And your friends at school. Well, baby girl, you are loved too. More than you will ever know.  Deeply and completely. You are special so special to me. You are a light in the dark.

I love you D!


P.S. Bebe/Bun Bun now has a new name. Bunny. Oh, and he is now a she too. I can hardly keep up.
