I wrote these to my children tonight.
Because one is learning to read, one is learning to identify simple sight words and one is learning to identify the letters of the alphabet and his favourite things.
Because they never fail to show me how disappointed they are whenever we open the mailbox and nothing is for them.
Because we just read Colin McNaughton’s S.W.A.L.K (Sealed With A Loving Kiss) at bedtime.
Because I know Nat would love to have me draw him a million green triceratops; Becks would love to colour some pretty flowers and Ben would love to be affirmed by my words.
Because Mama has been missing in action this whole week being at work, and she badly needs to tell them how much she loves them.
In a way that means most to them.
