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




All photos taken with my iPhone 6 and edited with VSCO.  Because I left my camera at home.


I’ve decided to make my Letters To Our Children series a link up. Now, you can simply add your links below and read the letters of other moms and see their photos. There is no pressure. you can join up one week, every week, once a month, once a year. It’s up to you. Or you can simply read and enjoy.

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.

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.
