A Letter From Lucas

Dear Mommy,

I know we are still getting to know each other, but here's what I can tell about you so far:

You must adore reading because I have a million books and you read to me all. the. time.

You must take pride in me looking my best because I'm always dressed in a matching shirt and pants. I'm always very comfy too.

You must yearn for whatever is in that funny red and white can because it's the first thing you drink every morning. When are you going to let me have a taste?

You must delight in seeing me smile because you sing silly songs, make silly voices, and perform silly dances that make me laugh.

You must care for me a lot because you take me to the doctor when I'm sick, bathe me, brush my teeth (all six of them) every night, clean my ears and nose (which I hate), keep my nails cut back and make all of my food at home from fresh organic produce.

You must think I'm pretty cute because you constantly have a camera in my face. I must admit, I love seeing pictures of myself too.

You must enjoy the outdoors because we go for a walk almost every day, just when I start to get a little fussy. I like it when you point out surfers, trees, plants and dogs.

You must savor turkey sandwiches because we stop to get one several times a week. At least now I'm getting my own!

You must want me to be a well-rounded individual because you take me to music class, swimming lessons, trips to far away places and let me play with finger paints.

You must assume I enjoy going to the place with all the food and bright lights more than I like going to the place with the fish and Legos. You're wrong.

You must really like that small white rectangular shaped thing you carry around with us everywhere because you talk to people on it (like Daddy!), take photos with it and do a lot of typing on it all day long. Sometimes I get to see Elmo on it, which is very fun for me.

You must need alone time every now and then because you leave me at home with different women and disappear for a few hours each week. I miss you while you are gone but, truth be told, I enjoy this time apart too.

You must cherish your friends because we spend a lot of time visiting with them. Lucky for me they all seem to have babies too!

You must appreciate it when I lay in my crib and fall asleep because when I wake up, you are always very happy to see me.

You must love me a lot because you give me lots of hugs and kisses.

You must believe
that I am special because you tell me every day.

I love you a lot too and I am very glad you're my mommy.


The best is yet to be.

He's a blessed little guy to have you as him mom. Really cute letter. I love that he's assertive and let you know you are sooo wrong if you think he prefers food over legos. Enjoy your little guy. . . they are children for such a short time.

Awwww so gorgeous! I did that writing prompt too and found it very therapeutic to look at the world through my children's eyes and think of how they see us as they grow and develop. My oldest child is 7 and is now really understanding that the world doesn't entirely revolve around her, but for our babies we are their everything and they don't yet see us as having needs of our own.

I loved reading this letter and the love you share with your son is so precious. This letter us one to treasure x

This is such a perfect letter from Lucas to you! I do believe that he would say all those things to you and someday I am sure that he will. You should have also said, "What is that dark red stuff you sometimes need at night after I go to bed? What can I do to fix that?" haha...something like that anyway...

Beautifull, i hope my kids feel the same way about me. But then again it is so easy to love them. Give him a kiss!

Aww. What a good letter!

Funny story - your "white thing" that you talk to daddy on reminded me...when Boo was younger (in the 18-24 months stage) Hub told him he loved him & Boo smiled & said "Bye!" he was so used to me saying "I love you! Bye" when I talked to Hub on the phone, he assumed that "bye" was the appropriate response to "I love you" LoL
