Dear Bennett, Letter 7.

Dear Bennett,

It’s one of those rainy mornings.  (Can you tell all the way in there?)  In this household, your dad and I have a hard time getting out of bed when it’s so gray, wet and drizzly outside.  Do you think you might be the same way?

Other habits that are common in our household:

  • We forget to buy key grocery items, so we make do with what we have until we get back to the grocery store.
  • We escort Samson to his food bowl in the morning.  This doesn’t mean that he needs food; it just means that he needs to be reminded that he already has food.  But fresh water is a must.
  • We brush our teeth.  (Most families do.)
  • We call your grandma every day (or nearly every day).
  • We help each other out.  Your dad has a hard time finding e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.  I’m sure he’ll be heavily relying on your scavenger hunting abilities to search out his shoes, his stamps, his headphones, his eyeglasses, his wallet and his can of pepsi…  Just think of it as a game that never ends.

I’m sure that when you join our family, some of our habits will adjust and we’ll also develop new ones, too.  Preferably these new habits will be snuggly, tidy and never hurt the animals.  Beyond that, I’m open to your inspiration!

With a growing love,

Your Mom

    It is just Rose and I but I adore our little family – it is exactly how it is supposed to be…..habits and all. That is the way it is supposed to be. 🙂

    “Snuggly, tidy and never hurt the animals”

    Three of the cardinal rules of life!

  4. LOL, it could be that Bennett inheirits the ability to not find anything instead! Of all my kids, only 2 of them can actually find anything! The rest are excellent at losing things, however . . . like their dad. Ha!

    Awww cute and tidy! I’m already looking forward to him being around 2-3 years old. 🙂 He’s gonna be something else alright.
