It’s was just before bedtime and both my kids decided they needed to write notes. One gets a heart shaped post-it out of my desk drawer and the other a sheet of paper from my printer and one then the other brings me their note and reads it to me.
My 5 year old princess: “I LOvE you mom” on the heart shaped post-it.
My 7 year old bug: “Dear MOM
I like you so much and I Love you Mom and I miss Dady at the city. I Miss Dad of all the time
Love Bug” (with a drawing of him and I holding hands in a garden.)
Oh how I treasure these notes.
