This picture actually said Dear daughter but I changed it to dear child because I have a son and I would like to apply it to every child.
If I could give you one thing in life,
I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes. Only
then would you realize how special
you are to me.
A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard. The door of
his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.
Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.
He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.
As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, ‘What happened here today?’
She again smiled and answered, “You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?”
“Yes,” was his incredulous reply.
She answered, “Well, today I didn’t do it.”

Here is another section from my mommy journal and one of the most memorable was on
Nov. 16, 2010
My son was about 3 years old and I was showing him a scrapbook page that had a picture of our old dog Tank (AKA Pups). I told him, “Look this was my baby”. And he looked at me with his big eyes and said, “I used to be a puppy”. I just about peed in my pants from laughter and crying (hahahaha).
Feb. 7 2012
My son asked me why I pee sitting down. I told him that I don’t have a wee wee. And he looked at me with a puzzling face, and he says what do you have? I don’t think he’s ready for the V word. So I just told him that girls don’t have a wee wee only boys do. Oh what a curious little boy.
I’ve been writing a Mommy Journal including some of the cute and funny things that has happened throughout the eight years of my son’s life. And I want to make it into a book and give it to him when he get’s older. Here are some of my writings:
2012 There was one night when we were laying in bed and my husband was telling my son about the time when his aunt (my sister) got chased in her underwear by my mom with a belt around the cul-da-sac, I think she had said a bad word. My husband said “I think we all should go outside in our underwear and run around the neighborhood” and my son said “then mommy would be a sexy grill (that’s how he says girl)”. And I said “Did you hear that, I’d be a sexy grill”. Yup that was our bedtime story.
Feb 12, 2013 For my son’s homework today, I had to write in his words if he’d like to live in the white house and why or why not? Just a reminder that the white house has 132 rooms, an indoor pool, a theater, a gym, and a library. So his response was “I would like to live in the white house because it has everything. And only if my mommy and daddy live there too. And I’d have to take my games and system, all my legos, my snack cabinet, and refrigerator”.
