A Birthday Wish

A few years ago, when my oldest turned four, I wrote him a little letter that turned out to be incredibly popular with my readers.

Two years later, for his sixth, I wrote him another one:

G,

There are a few things in life I am simply not good at: Fractions, balancing a checkbook, and remembering to clean the litter box top the list. And, I'm ashamed to admit, letting you know how incredibly amazing you are is also up there.

I'm sorry.

One day, when you like girls and think I am totally lame, I'm going to show you this letter. And you may roll your eyes and walk away, but I know you'll read it:

1. Your laugh makes me want to cry. It's the strangest paradox, but it's true. When you giggle and squint your eyes and laugh so hard no sound comes out....it's almost too much to bear. It sounds like what heaven must be.

2. The way you help your little brother put on his shoes is awesome. If I had an older brother, I'd want him to be exactly like you are.

3. The way you try and make me laugh when I'm having a bad day...kiddo, it's not your responsibility to see to my happiness, and I'm sorry if I make you feel that way. Just knowing you're my boy is enough to cheer me up. But thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

4. It's a wonderful feeling to know I can trust you'll uphold and honor our rules when you're not in our house. (Maybe shouting at the top of your lungs that '"Y7" ratings are inappropriate' isn't the most ideal way to make new friends, but we'll work on that.)

5. I will honor your.. (jump to it)
