An emotion driven experience


Dear Ryan and Christopher,

Oh the two of you definitely keep me busy! I’m really loving the stage of life that we are in right now. You both have such a wonderful sense of humor, and will literally have me laughing out loud because you are smart and witty — not because I had to laugh because I’m your mom.  We are a pretty tight little trio throughout the day. Listening to the two of you in the backseat while we are driving from one place to another brings a smile to my face. Yes. There are more times than not that I’m asking you to please stop talking and fighting. But generally I have a little smile on my face after glancing at the two of you in my rear view mirror. Ryan you are 7 1/2 and Christopher will be 5 in April. You can hang out together and play, talk about shows, and songs. Christopher adores his big brother, and I’m so thankful that Ryan might have more patience than I do!

It’s always so nice to hear compliments about my boys, but it also makes me feel a little uncomfortable. As parents we can only do so much to mold what our children will be in the world. We all work hard to find the right balance to make a happy and healthy kid. It’s exhausting, terrifying and gratifying. All these emotions can result from just one day. You are my little amigos, and truly make my heart swell with how much love I have for each of you.


Love, Mommy

Please take the time and follow the circle of amazing women and moms like Katrina.  You will be so glad that you did! <3

    Love this Kristin! It’s so true what you said and I can relate to feeling uncomfortable with the compliments, because there is only so much we can do. A lot of the good in our boys just comes from within! You captured them beautifully!!!!

    What sweet words to your boys. I can relate to so many things in your letter.

    I love the connection they have, Kristin. And some of my favorite moments have been listening to my boys talk in the back seat (though now my older sits in front with me, so I miss those times…). And your words are so true — exhausting, terrifying, and gratifying. That is definitely Motherhood. <3
