A letter while I’m away- 7/19/19

I miss you so much. I am away for the weekend and daddy is “keeping you safe” as you would say. I think your dad was excited to have this time alone with you guys and I am excited for that too- I just miss you 3 so much. I literally cannot wait to hear all about your weekend.

I’m in the boundary waters right now and it’s one of my favorite (and your daddy’s favorite) places we have ever been. I hope someday soon you two can come here with us and fall in love the way I did so many years ago.

There’s spiders here bigger than my hand!!! I wonder if you saw them if their size would make you more nervous or more interested. There’s also moose, cougars, and bears, but I didn’t get to see any. Not that I wanted to but maybe I would like to see them from far far far away.

We haven’t done much that would be of interest to you- lots of swimming. Late late tonight Keeko and I went down to the dock to look at the stars. Its going to be so fun when you girls are a little older and can stay up later and appreciate the stars and the constellations. Your dad knows some of the constellations, he’ll have to teach me so we can all spot them together. We also saw like four toads and again, I wished you were here to see them swimming in the water. I honestly think it was my first time seeing them actually go for a swim- by choice. Like the toad wanted to take a little dip hahaha

Right now I am sleeping in a tent with Keeko and Danielle. We are the only ones sleeping in a tent and everyone else is sleeping inside. I wonder if you guys are at home in your bunk beds or if daddy caved and let you both sleep in our big bed. I’m gonna guess he did; he doesn’t like you guys to know, but big big softie.

I can’t wait to be home with you guys again. I’m having fun here too- I am just so lucky to have something so amazing waiting for me at home. Any time I am away I can’t help but look forward to being home again to snuggle you little sweeties.

I hope you both know how much I love you and your daddy. The sun and moon rise and set with you guys and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I spent my whole life trying to figure out what makes me, me and the answer is you- you three fill my heart so full. I’m content and safe and to put it simply and best- so happy. Happiness surrounds me, because of you. I say this to you at home and I’ll put it in writing here- you make people happy. Your smile makes other people smile. You make people laugh.

Thank you for bringing a new kind of happiness into my life- a happiness that is boundless, effortless and easy. Thank you for your contagious enjoyment of literally anything. Thank you for letting me in when you aren’t feeling as happy by telling me “I’m having a hard day”. Thank you for letting me try to “fix” that by giving long hugs and back scratches. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face even when you are upset by always saying “I think a treat might make me better”. Thank you for choosing me to be your mommy.

I love you I love you I love you. I cannot wait to see you guys. In the mean time, some words of advice for you when you go on a getaway with friends: drink water, wear sunscreen.

You are loved. You are important. I believe in you.

Mom
