Letters To Our Children Motherhood

Letters to Our Children: May


My son has played almost every position on his baseball team this year. But I think that being the catcher might be his favorite.


Dear Pookah,

I think you have played.. every position on your baseball team this year. You are still learning, and your coach, lucky for you, sees that you want to try all the new things.

But all season long, you’ve  been BEGGING your coach to let you be the catcher.

You got your chance on Sunday and you were so eager…and proud of yourself.

All I kept thinking about the whole time Daddy would have been so proud.

I cried out there on that baseball field as I snapped photos and video of you my baby.. I could hear my Daddy’s voice in my head saying:

Yeah…my grandson was the catcher today.

He would have been tickled pink.

And so proud.

So Proud.

I’m so proud of you too. No matter what position you play. But I’ll never forget the stunned joy on your face when they told you that you would get to be catcher.

And the proud look on your face after the game when everyone kept patting you on the shoulder and telling you good job.

I think we’ve found your sport.

It was his first time playing catcher. Let's just say, he's a natural.

Love Mama

    That is so sweet! I need to make a letter to my son that he can open when he gets older. I wish I started doing that when he was a baby.

    This is so sweet. I sometimes wish I had kept a journal or wrote my kids letters when they were young. Time goes by way too fast.

    I’m sure he was so proud to be catcher! This was such a sweet post! My daughter loves softball and I think we will sign her up for a league sometime soon. I think she’ll have fun.

    What a sweet letter, this really is a great idea to write letters to your children. I don’t have children, but I could see how I would have loved reading letters from my parents later in life, had they written when I was little.

    Awww how sweet and how fun too. I wish I had done this when my kids were small and still at home. I could start a “letters to my grand babies” though. Thanks for sharing this moment.

    So sweet, my kids are totally making me soft in the emotional department. I love that your son had his moment and you were able to capture it. I also love that you were able to have a moment with your Dad although he wasn’t physically there.
