Dear St. Patrick's Day,
I'm not even the teensiest bit Irish but today makes me happy. Green eggs and toast for breakfast, new shirts for the kids and an afternoon of fun. Thanks for making a boring old Wednesday something worth celebrating.
Top of the morning to ya,
I'm on the verge of a very big birthday and what I want more than anything is an iPhone but your coverage in my neighborhood sucks. I drop calls constantly, get no bars in my own home, and get most of my messages hours after they've been left for me. You and your stupid iPhone are no good for me. And that makes me sad.
Shortly Switching to Verizon,
I know you are scared of your kindergarten shots which are coming later this afternoon, but I'll be with you the whole time. You're a brave little biscuit and will be just fine. Squeeze my hand as hard as you like.
I hope you are having a ball at Grandma's house. She said you and cousin Devin are about the cutest things ever. Can't wait to see you tomorrow. Don't do anything spectacular without me.
Only one more night in your way-too-long career as Man With Two Jobs. Thank you for the many sacrifices you have made to provide for our family. You are the best husband I know. And tonight, we celebrate!
Dear JK Rowling,
Thanks for writing a series that has captured my son's heart. He was hesitant to read your work for fear it would be too scary for him, but he has loved every second of your story. A boy who would rather read for hours on end instead of playing video games? A mother's dream. You and Mr. Potter are magical.
On The Waiting List For Hogwarts,
I know you've taken your share of hits at school lately and my heart aches for you because of it. I should tell you that sometimes life isn't fair and that these lessons will prepare you for your future but what I really want to say is that sometimes, people just suck. They are mean and selfish and say horrendous things for no other reason than because they are awful little people. Hold your head high, sweet girl. You are exactly as you should be and I love you fiercely.
Proud Mama Bear,
Dear Dr. W,
Just as you said, your work is getting better with every passing day. You are the bomb diggity and I can't thank you enough.
