To my Darling, Baby Girl – who is now six years old


To my darling, Baby Girl

I wish that writing to you like I do could capture the essence of just how special and funny and kind you are. I love all that you are learning about life and your world, and your quirky take on life.

Your dad and I are so proud of you and so proud of the person you are becoming.

I think you’ve watched the DVD all of three or four times, but you loved Frozen and Elsa. You could sing the words to “Let It Go” verbatim. Not in tune – but you certainly did know the words.

Now that you are six, it’s all about Jake and the Neverland Pirates. In fact, it was your party last week and the theme? Yes, it is a pirate princess party. You had a puppet show at your party and you loved it. All the kids had a really great time. And I loved that it was about you! It was your special day.

Letter to my love


To my love, Please don’t read this if you don’t have the time – I know you’re hectically busy, but these are just some random thoughts, things that I think of at work that I want to tell you then forget when I get home or am too tired after putting Madam down.  They’re just… Continue reading Letter to my love
