When I asked you the big question, "What is it like being married to me?" Why did you laugh? And why did you choose to not really answer the question? I'm still waiting......
Dear Aunt Lorraine,
I meant everything I said in the card I gave you at Mother's Day. We truly are the women we are in our family - a lot because of you. You are leaving a legacy of love and a willingness to serve each other and our community and we promise to make you proud. When you get to heaven will you please give my brother a big hug for me and tell him I miss him like crazy? I know you will, you already told me that he is the first person on your list to go find! Go give him hell in true Aunt Lorraine style. Oh how we will miss you, you feisty little lady. You have always been more like a grandmother to me and a mother to my mom. You keep fighting though right now and we will enjoy every little moment we have with you here on this earth.
Can you please figure out how to clean yourself? I grew up watching The Jetsons. I thought that we would be 'the future'. I know we have the 'roomba' available to us now. I need to get one of those. But a built-in house robot to clean would be wonderful. Until that happens, I think that you will be happy to know that I'm calling Marissa for a little visit tomorrow to make you shine like you used to when she was here regularly. Now, Marissa is a little treat here and there.....for all of us!
Dear Luvs Diaper Company,
Can you please make a size 7 diaper? We have been stretching the size 6's for a couple of years now and my little boy just keeps growing and refuses pull-ups. When he wears a pull-up, changing is a little more involved....with shoes needing to come off and on EACH time. No fun for any of us. And I already have a hard time getting him to stop playing to do bathroom time, let alone a full change. Oh and could you lower the price please. A box of diapers each week has been tough on the budget for the last 8 years.
Please quit making that clunking noise. Needing to buy tires for all three cars this summer just about killed us. Can you give us a few months to recover before we need anymore repairs? With that said, we are still loving your style!
Could you please turn-off just for a few hours each day. Gearing up for The Queen Bee Market has my mind on over-drive which sends me into overwhelm mode. I'm not necessarily nice to my family in overwhelm mode. And they deserve me to be nice from time to time!
Dear Mom + Dad,
I really do love your new 'bungalow'. It already feels like home!
