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