Letters to our Daughters - February 17, 2014

Dear E,

It's been a rather eventful month.

But a long time coming.  I was so afraid to cut those curls.  I was so jealous of them.

But you hated having your hair brushed.  Or washed.  Or put in "pretty bows."  The ends were so tangled and dry and dead.

So we had to do something.

You now truly "look" like the "big" girl you are becoming.

PS...I love that you are hamming it up for the camera now.  You seem to be basking in the attention of being in front of the lens and that sure does make me happy lol.

[Kids Were Here] - February 2014

You leave them alone for one second, and you come back to the contents of the fridge on the floor, the spice drawer emptied, the cookie jar decimated.

Or their signature lives forever on the end table.  And the couch.

You are stuck between inconsolable tears and uncontrollable laughter.  However did you do anything before these little destroyers entered your life?

But sometimes, what they leave behind only has one response.  That little smile that comes in at the proof of their personality.
