Love note

Yesterday I discovered this little love note on my desk:


Dear Mommy,

I love you. You don’t look old.

I’m quite convinced that my 5-year-old would surely have written something like, “you are radiant,” “you are beautiful,” or maybe even, “you are the fountain of splendid youth” if “radiant,” “beautiful,” and “fountain of splendid youth” were as easy to spell as “old.” Likewise, I am certain none of my children’s love for me is contingent on my appearance, especially since after I picked up my 3-year-old from preschool yesterday and chatted with her teachers I noticed I had green smoothie encrusted on my upper lip and on the tip of my nose. “I have dried smoothie all over my face!” I exclaimed.

“I know,” said my 8-year-old.

“Why didn’t you tell me?”

“I don’t know. You still look nice.”

      About the smoothie on my face? Probably ewww. Looked like nasty snot.

      Rae has been writing notes to me every day now. She saw that I put the one on my blog and wrote one specifically to add to my blog. It said, “Thank you for saying I’m cute.” She writes these notes when I’m doing school with Madeline or if I’m getting ready. She doesn’t really like “real” school
      “work,” so I have been letting this be her handwriting practice. :-)

      Miss you! And I’m glad someone still reads my sorely neglected blog!

    I’m seriously impressed that your five year old can spell “dear”! I’m always impressed with your children and they’re drawing/writing abilities! Thanks for sharing with us!
