Connor just gave me the sweetest birthday note ever. I know that I am going to treasure it and keep forever. In fact, I might just tape it up on my bathroom mirror so I can read it whenever C and I have one of those days. You know the ones…frustration levels are high, tempers flare, patience runs thin…that’s the kind of day we are having today.
He wanted to play on the computer, but this time, instead of going right to Nick Jr. or Webkinz, he typed me a note. And this is what is said:
we love mom!!
My favorite thing about mom is that she is the best cook I know, and I like to go to the park with you, and Logan (like my school playground.) I love mom all the way to Pluto. I like to give mom hugs and kisses at night. I like how she let me buy that stop sign.
Melt my heart! Love that boy. He has such a sweet spirit under all that intensity and emotion.
And the stop sign? He’s talking about a real stop sign that we found at a garage sale today for 50 cents. It’s now hanging proudly on his bedroom door, and he thinks it’s pretty much the coolest thing ever. I have to admit that it is pretty cool.
I had a great 30th birthday yesterday, and I’m working on a post about it. But Connor’s sweet note deserved a post of it’s own.
