Letters to my children

Three and a quarter

November 23, 2012

Dear Piran,

These letters are always written by me for you and I always wonder what you will think of them when you get to read them in the future. I am very conscious that this is my point of view, and recently I have been thinking a lot about how you see the world. This is a great age, full of discovery and the questions come thick and fast from your mouth every day. So, for a change, I decided that this letter would be you answering some questions for me. I asked you these over the breakfast table this morning.Kate laughed and wondered what we were doing I am sure.

I love to see the world through your eyes. Everything is either Yesterday or Tomorrow. You are so confused about the fact it is now dark in the evening but not yet bedtime. You hate the dark and sleep with a light on. You will not leave the house in the evening without a torch. You know lots of songs and sing them to me and Kate. You really like whales and dolphins at the moment. You no longer want Mummy cuddles first, you usually head straight for Kate instead. You don’t cry when I drop you at nursery any more, just run off and play. You are our best boy and we love you so much.

Love Mum x
