This month I’m participating in a blog circle hosted by LaShawn over at Everyday Eyecandy where participants each write a letter to our children and post it on our blogs, linking them to the next person in the circle. At the end of the post, please feel free to click the link and visit the next person in the circle.
Share the love and enjoy the peek into our relationships with our children.
You may never be able to hold a full conversation like other four-year-olds, but that’s OK because I’m pretty sure I can read your mind. When you touch my face I know you’re telling me you love me. But I also know the difference between your warm hand on my face because you love my soft skin, and your hand on my face because something is making you feel stressful and touching me helps you to center yourself. I know when you say “no” to school, it isn’t because you don’t like school, it’s because there are other places you’d rather be where people don’t make you work as hard. I wish I could leave you at grandma’s house everyday sweetie, but trust me, you’ll have many more fun experiences at school. I know you don’t want to eat dinner with the rest of us, but that’s my fault for giving in to your cute requests for a “cracker fish” snack as soon as we get home from school. You’ve learned that when you use your words to ask for things, you get them (most of the time). I can’t wait for the day when you’ll ask for something completely random with words that you’ve put together yourself, not just another phrase we’ve taught you. That day is coming, I can feel it.
I love watching you and your big brother play with each other. Play between brothers needs no words, just laughter. You two do just fine.
Your language skills are improving slowly but steadily, almost every day you say something that completely amazes me. But then again, all you have to do is look at me with your big brown eyes and smile at me, and I’m lost.
You’re my amazing little cuddly bear, I love you so much I don’t even have the words.
