letter to angus phototA letter to my boy.

To my dear darling 3 year old boy,

• “Any day spent with you is my favorite day. So today is my new favorite day.”
― A.A. Milne

I want you always to remember that you are amazing. You are incredible, generous, strong, brave and mischievous. You are everything to me.
For years, I dreamt that you would be here in my life. That I could know you and love you and share my life with you. I am the luckiest mummy alive, to call you my son.
You take each day as it comes. Completely in your stride. You teach me how to be the best I can be. You remind me to slow down. To stop pushing myself and to just sit and be. With you. Playing, or cuddling, or chatting or reading.
I watch you play, and I listen to you speak and my heart swells with love and pride. Your heart is so big. There’s room for everyone.
Sometimes, I have to be tough. I have to say no and I have to stop you. As you grow, you are understanding and you try so hard. Thank you for trying.
I catch your eye and you smile at me. You give me a grin and you jump for a cuddle. You love so much.
I cherish the moments that you lay in my arms. The times that my kiss or my cuddle can soothe you. I hold you and tell you that I love you. How wonderful you are. The thought that one day, you will find out that not everyone is kind, makes me so sad. I want to protect you from everything but I know that you will be ok.
Without you, I don’t know who I would be. I love my life with you. Mummy and her helper.
Your future excites me. I can’t wait to see what will make you happy. How you will learn and where your life will take you. Until that time though, I will hold you close whilst you want me and let your wings grow and stretch as you strive for independence.

My baby boy;
• “If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
• “If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.”
― A.A. Milne
• “I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
• “Sometimes,’ said Pooh, ‘the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
― A.A. Milne
• “The things that make me different are the things that make me.”
― A.A. Milne
• “If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.”
― A.A. Milne

Love you always, Mummy x x x
