My Baby, She Wrote Me A Letter...

Dear Mommy,

How do you like my picture? I know you have been terribly exhausted lately because I keep getting you up real early to feed me and stuff so I decided to write your blog entry for today. I sure have seen you do a lot of running around the house lately-why do you keep putting all our clothes and the rugs and sheets and towels that that new pug peed on in that big metal noisy monster? It's so rattly!! Anyway, I enjoyed chewing on your fancy yarn today-thanks for letting me do that while you made some orange yarn thing. You've been making lots of orange thingys lately-what are they? I saw my big sister, I think you call her Thing 2, making something with 2 pointy sticks and some string-she seems to be getting good at that! I much prefer drooling on it. It gets all nice and slimy that way. I have had lots of fun riding in the van on our 100 trips we've been taking every day-it feels like we live in that thing this week! Whee! Especially yesterday's trips in all that cold, crazy rain. It's nice to have a little change of scenery I think-do you? I like to listen to the music you play, too. Especially the music at home-that funny ringing noise that comes from that little box with the voices in it. It seems to ring like that a LOT though and now whenever that ringing music plays, you shout "who is it NOW?!" That's funny--I didn't know you could talk to music boxes! It must be so much fun to be a mommy. You get to stay up late, get up early, you never have to take naps, you get to make all your own food AND stuff for daddy and my big sisters, you can play with big rattly toys, you get to drive the car all day, you get to take the doggies outside a bunch of times-so many fun things. It's hard being a baby sometimes-I just have to hang out all day, play with my stuff, take naps, and make cute smiley faces at people. They seem to like it. Well, I hope you don't mind me using the computer for a little bit-I just wanted to say hi and thanks for being my mom. See you at 5 in the morning!

Love,

Thing 3

Stop it, Jody! You are making me so jealous!!!!!!!!!!! Actually, I remember having quite a few of those days myself. There were times I thought we lived in our car and McDonald's and Pizza Hut were our personal chefs!

My son wrote me a similar letter, just last week. No rest for the weary.

Isn't she so thoughtful? Almost makes me miss having babies around but it IS kinda nice when they take care of themselves! Your time will come soon and you'll wonder where those days went so fast.

I can soooooooooooo relate. The only thing is I am about 2 years ahead into your future, and it is wonderful!!!!! The kids get up a little later, fix a little bit of their own food, and can mostly put themselves to bed after you pray with them and kiss them goodnight. Much better life for Mommy! catie

Well, I WAS at the point where everyone could do lots of things on their own but then we went and had Thing 3 and now we're back to the beginning! oh well-what's 1 kid in school, 1 ready to start school, a new puppy and a baby, eh? just makes life interesting!!
