Toddle Along Tuesday: Dear Henry

Linking up with Growing Up Geeky today! A letter to Henry.


Dear Henry,

I wrote you a letter at one year. And I meant every word, but this morning I want to remind you of a few things. You woke up at 6:09 a.m. and you were you're typical self. Tired, crabby, clingy. And, honestly, I'm feeling about the same right now. 

So, I want to take this post to remind you of to stop enjoy life a little. You're a busy guy right now. The doctor called you "athletic" but other words come to mind for me: hyper, wild, crazy. With this busyness comes a certain amount of chaos. This need to go, I swear, makes you get out of bed, even on the darkest rainiest days to explore and play. A lot of you just wants to snuggle back in, take a snooze, enjoy the time. But something in you wont let that happen. Sadly, this means a lot of crabby, overtired, wild, hyper baby days. 

Maybe you're not like this anymore. Maybe, I spend my days trying to pull you away from the television, video game, or whatever you kids play with these days ::insert old lady "get-off-my-lawn" voice::. If that's the case, ignore this. Get off your butt, and go discover life. 

But if your anything like you've been the first 15 months of your life, then do something for me. Stop, relax, and enjoy the moment every now and then. The next thing can wait. Let yourself enjoy the details. There is so much happiness, joy, and just awesomeness by living in the moment. Enjoy what you're doing, and try not to worry about what you have to do, or want to do next -- life goes fast enough as it is. Soak up the details while you can. I promise you'll have just as much to learn, and you (and those around you) may even be a little happier!

Love,

Mama

  1. Oh, I feel you. There are days (sometimes even full weekends) where I want to remind Ryan of this, too.
