Letters to Our Children: December

It's the LAST lettters to our children series of the year.

Letters to Our children december.

Dear Pookah,

It’s been a year.

I feel like we’ve both spent the year, relearning our roles as parent and child.

You are stubborn.

You think you know everything.

You want to be right, ALL THE TIME.

As your mother, it falls to me the majority of the time to prove to you that:

I am more stubborn.

You don’t know everything

You are not right. Not even half of the time.

Letters to our children december

I am hoping that all parents go through this transition period. This reexamining of roles.

I know this season will change, and that this too shall pass. But even through our struggles,

I am proud of the way your mind works. I secretly admire the GALL you have to question every single thing and not take anything at face value.

Letters to our children december

You are, one of the most loving, happiest people that I’ve ever met. And every day, I feel blessed when you want to talk to me, hug on me, kiss me, or tell me about your day.

When I hear that joyful laugh or see you giggle mischievously, dimple winking in and out.

I can’t wait to see what next year brings.


Love Mommy.


This post was a part of a series I did this year called Letters to Our Children. I really enjoyed writing a letter to my son every month.  I’m not sure if it will continue next year as a monthly series, but I know I will write one to him at least every few months!

    Very nice! I have a daughter that seems like she is similar and in my mind I have said similar things. I love that you are writing this down. Great way to capture your feelings!

    They get more stubborn as they get older. My son… the chain. He likes to do things without me telling him to do it which works my nerve. The other day he goes and starts my car to warm it up…..did I ask him to do that.

    Building a set of these letters is a fantastic idea. they do get more stubborn. Maximum stubbornness is 16, sub-maximum is 21, lol both ages are where they know everything, too

    This is beautiful. It reminds you of your child’s childhood and lets them know how they were and what you hoped for as they grew. Thanks for sharing!

    Love this as a reminder that both parent and child can learn from each other. Bottom line is they are still children and they need to learn respect and the lessons we can teach them to help them as they grown.

    I think it’s so sweet to write a monthly letter to your child. When he gets older, he will cherish every single one of those letters.

    THis is such a sweet idea. I’m sure these letters are going to be sooo special when the kids grow up and can read these themselves. I would love to do this too.

    I loved reading this post, something your son will definitely cherish in the years to come. I can’t imagine all of the struggles one faces raising a child.

    Moo’s always been a bit stubborn. It’s inherited from my mom’s side of the family. However, her “I know it all” attitude has been getting in her into a bit of hot water around the house this year. I’m not sure if she’s picking it up from school or this is just a natural phase that kids go through. I do know that I’m hoping it passes soon!
