The Eve of 6

August 20, 2009 · 3 comments

I don’t normally write letters to my kids here…but for some reason tonight, I kind of feel for it, so here it is.

My dear, sweet Matthew,

It’s hard to believe that tomorrow you are going to be 6 years old.  I so vividly remember being pregnant with you, feeling you move and falling in love with you before I ever saw your face.  You are an amazing little boy – absurdly smart, silly, sensitive and loving.  You’ve grown so much in the last year – the change from 5 to 6 has been filled with amazing discoveries, including you discovering your independence more than ever (your dad and I are totally loving you being able to turn on the tv, the playstation and being able to make your own breakfast!!).  You constantly surprise me by repeating words and facts that you seem to absorb like a sponge. Your ability to read is fantastic (I always hoped for my kids to love to read like I do); your ability to love and be tender with your brother is even better.  Of course, you’re not perfect…you still get whiny when you’re exhausted, you still have issues with the bathroom, and you mimic me way too much, but you are adorable and easy to forgive when you make mistakes. You are handsome, athletic and such a wonderful little boy.  I am lucky to be your mama.  Happy birthday, baby.

Love, Mommy
