Letters to my world

Dear Neighbor,
I really like you. You are very nice and a good neighbor, but do you really need to make a comment about my child's binky every time you see us? Did you ever think that maybe there are reasons we still let her have it?
Signed,
a neighbor that has no intention of taking her child's binky away just because you think it is time.

Dear general populace of the world,
You are all great and wonderful and we love you. However, the timing of our children is not up to you, so please stop asking when we are going to have another one. It freaks my husband out.
Signed,
a woman that wants more children....eventually.

Dear Weather Forecaster,
It was so rude of you to say that the weather at the beach was going to be wonderful just for us to go and get rained on. Oh well, we had tons of fun anyways.
Signed,
Someone who is not really that grumpy.
Dear boy who stole my beach bag,
I am glad you have a wonderful mother who made you return it.
Signed,
It only had beach towels in it anyway.
Dear Child,
I love taking you to the beach because you love it, but when you cry hysterically when we have to leave it makes me not want to go to the beach anymore.
Signed,
Your mother

Dear Child,
I know you love the water, but walking straight into it with no regard to its depth is not a good idea. Please wait for daddy or me to help you.
Signed,
a mother that doesn't want her baby drowned
Dear Mac,
Photobooth is definitely one of your redeeming qualities. Good job.
Signed,
a Photobooth lover

Dear Husband,
Your dirty pants do not go on top of the dresser. I am seriously considering shredding the next pair I find there. Just FYI.
Love,
the person who does your laundry

Ha! You make me laugh. I have given up on Mark's dresser. And made a mental note to ask Seth when he's ready for #2 just so that I can see that wild look in his eyes. :)

Very funny - my husband does the same thing... grrr.. Binkies are good... Both my kids were binky babies and I can say because those silly little things - I slept very well every night.. When each child turned 3 years old - we had a throwing away the binky ceremony.. Very cool - my kid gathered up all her binkies and threw them in the trash herself and then we did the conga through the house... neither kid looked back.. Very good memory..
Love to you
Kelly

I was a binky baby, and so were my two kids. No binky stories for them, but my mom told me that I lost mine and screamed for hours while she frantically searched.

I had dropped it in one of my dad's cowboy boots.

GROSS!

I like your letters, however, why are you being so nice? It is only because you are putting on your blog, right??? Just tell people to shut their face. NONE OF IT is their business.
ALSO, how grand you gave Rachel an award. She always makes me laugh too. Except, I can no longer eat chili the same way : ) Don't get me wrong, I STILL eat it, I just think of it in her pants....OH MY.....
Good one Debra.
