Friday's Letters

Dear Benny….you sweet thing….your mama loves you so much sometimes it makes me feel like I might go crazy from the enormity of it! But do us all a favor and slow down with the growing. Time is racing by and tomorrow you’ll be 16 months old….you don’t feel like a baby anymore when I hold you in my arms, you feel like a little boy and that happened literally overnight last week. Tuesday, I was holding my little baby and Wednesday, I was holding a young boy, with dangly legs and curious eyes. There aren’t words to describe what this does to my heart, so cool it, will ya? Just till my heart catches up....Dear Friday…I never believe you will actually come and miraculously, every week, you show as promised. Thank you for that. You make me happy when skies are grey. Dear Asaparagus….you’re so delicious. Especially grilled, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with the tiniest pinch of salt and pepper but man OH MAN do you make my pee smell and for that? You’re on my list. Dear person-who-is-going-to-do-my-manicure-tonight….please do a nice job. Please don’t rush. Please don’t let me pick some stupid trendy color that I’m going to hate immediately. Thanks. Dear New CRV….I can’t wait to pick you up tomorrow, you and your cute, sparkly new little wheels and your delicious new car smell. I promise to keep you clean and love you the best I can….I already ordered you some cute little chevron striped fabric bins to keep you all organized and tidy. you deserve it…you’re so pretty. I love you already!

And last but not least…

Dear Husband…thank you for loving me. thank you for being patient with me. thank you for believing in me when I can’t believe in myself. And thank you for knowing how to haggle for a good deal on a new car, change the oil, mow the grass, open the pool and turn on the sprinklers. I love you. I haven’t said that enough lately, but I do. With all my heart.

your letter to asparagus is so funny! i cooked some with lunch today. the first time my hubs had it, he didn't know it made your pee smell, and he was ready to go to the doctor because he thought something was wrong lol.

And yes, seriously. Asparagus pee. So strange. But it's oh so good so I deal. ;) xoxo

I found your blog through your link up on Friday's Letters. I'm happy to be your newest follower!

I have the Honda CRV too and I love it. I got it a few years ago before I had a baby, but now I think it's the perfect mix of cool and mom-friendly/functional!

And I LOVE asparagus, I'm just too lazy to ever prepare it at home. Luckily my mom makes a mean lemon-misted version that I can't get enough of.
