Letters to Our Daughters – June 2013

My sweet child,

I cannot believe how big you are.  Everywhere we go people ask “she’s only 2”?  We are STILL working on going potty and using words to communicate.  Please.Stop.The.Madness.

We just got back from our worldwind 8 day vacation to the East Coast without daddy. I was amazed at how well you did and that we survived!  You were still shy overall, but you did get to see and play with tons of new and old friends.  I think people were only moderately happy to see me but through the roof to see you.  You have your own personal fan club at 2.  I shudder to think about you as a teenager ::sigh::

We went back to Sesame Place and it is strange to think of how different it was.  Last year you chased Ernie around, hated the rides, never wanted to leave the pool, and tried to dance in the parade.   This year you wouldn’t go near Ernie, you wanted to ride the carousel over and over and OVER, you still enjoyed the water but when Ernie came to give you a hug during the parade you hid in your stroller.  During the second parade you were super happy to see Super Grover.  If we go back next year what will you like and hate?

Only two more months until your birthday and shortly after you will start preschool.  Three days a week mommy will have to find something to occupy herself.

Time is flying.




Please continue around our circle starting with Bonnie Hussey and see what she has to say to her daughter this month.

Love seeing all these shots from your trip! You guys packed a lot into 8 days! Looks like it was super fun…but admit it, the best part was meeting me, right? Hahaha!

Love these! It looks like you guys had such a fun trip, and not just at my house 😀

I really loved looking at all your pictures from your trip. Looks like you and the little miss had so much fun 🙂

Not everyone wants their everyday, guaranteed-to-make-you-cry-happy-tears moments documented. But if you treasure those memories, let's chat. I'll bet you love it so much you'll come back for seconds.

photos + video = awesome
