or in other words- Dear mom, You are the best mom ever. You should have an award and this award represents your happiness.
If you’re a parent you know there are some good days- and then plenty not so good days. This little note from my daughter M (6 years old at the time) was left under my pillow… it made my whole day. She worked very hard and carefully on this whole Valentine, making the bracelet, drawing and writing, and packaging it all together, with just a little tying-things-together help from her dad.
Many times over the years I’ve found myself wondering, “who put me in charge? What do I know that qualifies me to be a parent?” Notes like this make me feel like you might be on the right track, succeeding in some respects. So thank you M for the vote of confidence every mother need every now and again.
For some reason, all of my kids are note writers. When the want to express something they write it down and hand in over in the form of a letter. This goes for Santa and the Tooth Fairy as well. Every Christmas and every lost tooth is a chance to correspond with these mysterious characters, and hopefully learn a little bit more about them. Let’s make this ‘letter week’- every day a favorite letter we have found, borrowed or been left behind.
