Letters to Our Children

Each month, a group of moms get together for a Letter to our Children.

 

Dear Pookah,

In exactly ONE week you will be 6.

I will have spent 6 years of my life being your Mama.

I love you.

I am so proud of you.

I love your honesty. How even if I don’t ask, you tell me you got in trouble at school for talking.

I love your reasoning for it ” God made mouths for talking Mama” ( side note, how do you argue with a child who says things like that????)

I love how when I come to wake you up in the morning, you pull the covers back over your head.

I love your laugh.

I love how all of your toys have different voices. Honestly, I can spend hours listening to you play.

I love how you interact with your friends.

I  even love how on the weekends, you have started to tell me you are going to watch cartoons instead of insisting that I come downstairs with you at 630 am.

You are growing up.

At times, I am thrilled at any show of independence( and the opportunity to sleep in).

And then at other times, I just want you to stay a baby.

Because I know that one day, you won’t need me to make sure you brush ALL of your teeth. You won’t need me to make sure you washed all of the special places. You won’t need me to cook your food, or teach you to clean your room or teach you how to tie your shoes.

You won’t need me the way you do now.

I think I’ll be ok with it when that day comes.

But for now, I’ll enjoy the way you ask me all the questions, how you think I know everything, how you NEED me for a lot of things.

I’ll enjoy you being YOU.

I love you.

Love Mama

    I think it’s great that you write monthly letters to your children. And one day they will enjoy reading all of them. What a wonderful idea!

    I’m always struggling with learning to let my kids be independent without getting in my feelings about them not needing for certain things now. We get so used to being involved in every aspect and every moment that it’s hard to let go sometimes and bittersweet watching them grow.

    I love this idea. It’s such a wonderful idea to write letters to your kids every month! When they get older and read all of them, it’s going to be a great memory!!

    Such a beautiful letter, they say kids grown so fast one day you’re holding them for the first time next day they are going out by themselves.

    This is such an awesome idea to write these letters to your children on a monthly basis. I truly need to start doing this even to my grown children. Better yet, I should start doing this for my grandchildren as well!

    I would take all these letters and make it into a book or journal. This way when he gets older he can cherish his mom’s sweet words to him. He too can one day share these same letters with his kids.

    I think we as parents should do this often for our children. It’s so important for them to know how much we care and love them. Wonderful post!

    This is the best idea and I so love it. I love your letter to your son and thing it is so an amazing gift to him. It is so sweet as a mother to write our children letters they can read later when they are older or grown. No matter what in a mothers eyes, our children are always going to be our babies.

    What a sweet letter! I think we should all write letters to our children from time to time. I’ve done that in the past. Will do that for the holidays too. Thanks for reminder!
