A letter to my Nephew

Dear Monkey,
You are 5 now.  Can you believe it?  I think you can.  You are ALREADY talking about how you're almost 6!  Monk, please slow down.  My heart can't handle it!  You are such a sweet boy.  Even though you are growing older, you still enjoy a good snuggle every now and again.  I love that about you.  Every year before your Birthday, you and I have a talk.  This year, we were sitting in the guest room and you were on my lap in the rocking chair. This was our conversation:
Me: Do you think you will still love me when you're five?
You:  (shaking your head and playing with a toy dinosaur) Of course La-Lay.
Me:  Will you always love me as much as you do now or are you going to be too cool to love me this much?
You:  What?  I will always love you!  I will always be your friend!
Me:  Really?  Good, because I don't know what I would do without you Monkey.  You are my favorite boy.
You:  I know.  You're so crazy La-Lay.
Me:  I know.  I love you, Monkey Boy.
You:  I love you, Cutie Girl Head.

3 love notes:

  1. He is so wise at 5, you are crazy you cutie girl head!! Also that dinosaur train cupcake cake is adorable!!


  2. This reminds me of something my sister would have said to my kiddos! She is no longer with us but her memories of her love towards them are still with them!


You've always been my favorite... don't tell the others!
