Letters to My Men

I found a blog called "Today's Letters" written in the form of letters.  It is a cute married couple that write short little letters to each other or other people or other things.  I love it.  I want to try it.  So here goes . . .

Dear Darren:  Thanks for washing the dishes today.  I love it when you wash the dishes. I mean, I really looove it.  I also love it when you bring me double stuff Oreos.  And now I love it when you bring me cherry flavored M&M's (yeah, that's right - cherry flavored M&M's).  I love it when you come home early from work.  And do the dishes from last night before dinner tonight.

Dear Davis:  You say the funniest things and sometimes I have to try to hide my laughter so you will keep talking because you don't mean to be funny.  Today I asked you why you don't like kisses (someday you will change you mind, I hope).  You answered, "Because they have sour cream."  You continued to tell me you like sour cream in your hands, but not with your kisses.  I don't know.  I just don't know.

Dear Noah:  The gate at the top of the stairs is for you safety.  Please don't kick it down again and roll down the stairs.  You didn't like it.  I didn't like it.  But I did love all the cuddling I got when you were done crying but not quite ready to get down and conquer the world again.

Dear Marian,
I love it when you write about the "men" in your life. Before you know it, they will be grown and you will cherish these memories.
