Lizzie's Letter

Remember when I said I was going to write Lizzie a letter for her 10th birthday? Well, as busy as we got I was never able to do that for her. I did write one over the course of this past week and I've finished it and plan on giving it to her this weekend. I folded it up like back when we used to pass notes in Junior High and wrote on the outside and everything. I'm absolutely sure she will love it and cherish it - well, I hope she will. So instead of a smile list today, I've dediced to post a copy of her letter. Of course, this is the typed version - I wrote hers by hand. Seems more personal this way. Tell me what you think...

My letter to Lizzie, 2008

Dear Lizzie,

I was going to write you this letter for your birthday but as you can see I am quite late in getting it to you.

Know how you always write me little notes saying how much you love me and that I’m the best mommy in the world? Well I figured that since I love getting those notes so much and they make me happy, that I would write you one back just to tell you I love you.

You were right that when I first found out I was going to have a baby that I didn’t want a girl. In fact, I cried when I found out you weren’t a boy. But I tell you – I quickly adjusted and was soon very happy! I got excited about you, especially when I saw all the cute little dresses I could put on you. I cannot imagine now having all those boys in my house and I truly cannot imagine my life without my Lizzie. I have loved you more than anything in this world since before you born. You are such a sweet, loving little girl! I like when we do things together – like when we watch girly movies, we go camping, we play games!

Of all the things I have ever done in my entire life or will ever do, the thing I am most proud of is that I am your mom.

I love you very much and you are the best daughter in the whole wide world.

Hey! I just realized by looking at my blogroll that I didn't have you listed! So I had to add you, and hopefully will be visiting you more often.
I love that you wrote a letter to Lizzie. And I also just read your 6/30 post, and the sweet things you said about me. I am not sure that I am organized - just OCD. Right?
I like the new look of your blog. You wrote about how you feel so disorganized and discombobulated and don't know about blogging, but I say blog anyway! Write anything down that is on your mind. Use it as a tool for yourself, as well as a way to keep in touch with people. I like reading about anything you write!
Hope you're having a good weekend. ;)
