Letters to our sons ~ October 2013

I am excited and honored to be a new member of the blog circle “Letters to our Sons” alongside some super sweet and talented ladies. It is here where we will express our thoughts and feelings about our boys each month and I am proud to be a part of this project. I have a pretty cool son…yes I do!


Dear Elvis,

Hey buddy. I wanted to take a minute to tell you how much I love your sweet little soul. You are such a sensitive little guy and care so much for the feelings of others. You are brought to tears when someone’s feelings are hurt and have a level of empathy that all adults should carry with them throughout their lives. I know you got this from your father because he is the same way and you both encourage me to be a better person each day I am on this planet. You never fail to let me know how much you love me, how beautiful I am in your eyes, and to give me the physical affection I so crave as a mom. Morning snuggles with you in our bed are my favorite part of the day because I know by just your smell and warm body intertwined with mine that we have another day of life here together. I never take one single day with you for granted and feel unbelievably lucky I have been able to spend so much time with you since you were born. This month I want to honor your humorous side as well and your incessant knock, knock jokes, poo poo pants obsessions, and wild game escapes. Your laugh is infectious and your dimples a true testament to the overflowing amount of joy you have bubbling in your heart. I love you fart face.


Love your “You’re the Best” Mom
