Love letter to my 2-year-old son


Woman embressing her son

Dear, Son
Here we are. Two years after you made your entrance into the world and my life hasn’t been the same since. You are by far my biggest source of joy and my biggest energy drain. You keep me going, you keep me laughing and man, oh, man do I love seeing you smile.

You are a crazy little boy, though, do you know that? You run in circles around the living room, giggling to yourself and falling out as soon as you make yourself dizzy. If another little boy grabs your toy, you snatch it back and tell him to “Walk away!” I love that you give the other kids a warning before you lay the smackdown. We gotta work on that, though, okay?

Your appetite is legendary. I have YET to see you turn down food. I knew you were going to be my eating buddy when your first full sentence was “Mommy, is dinner ready yet?” at about 16 months. I almost dropped the dishes I was holding when I heard you say that! Smart AND loves food? My heart swelled three sizes that day. You are my baby for real!!! You keep going and going and going and you’ve got the build to match. It’s so cute to see you turn into your daddy. You and your daddy have the same face, the same walk, the same mannerisms, the same emotional make-up. It’s really awesome to see.

I love giving you hugs and kisses every night before you go to bed, I know you’ll always say, “I love you, too, Mama,” in response. You are such a little gentleman and I’m telling you, it’s just IN you. I haven’t had to teach you how to be kind and loving – you knew how to embody those qualities from birth.

I will always love you and I will always be in your corner. I don’t make many promises to people but I will make this promise to you. I will ALWAYS listen to you and I will ALWAYS be someone you can count on. I will do whatever I can to make your life better for as long as there is air in my lungs and my heart still beats. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS.

Yours loving and caring!

Mommy
