Pin It Did you ever think about what it would really feel like to have a child? To watch them grow and learn the ways of the world. I am often in awe at their wonder, their pure joy in the magic of life.
I may not have disciplined you enough, or maybe I disciplined you too much. I know at times, I drove you nuts! I fed you and bathed you and clothed you.
I bought you toys. I sang to you, read to you, taught you. You were my boy, my precious, baby boy.
I got up with you to send you to school. I stroked your forehead and hair when you were sick.
I knew you were not feeling well, because you let me do these things. You were never very cuddly. I paid for heat to keep you warm. I stared at you for days, after you were born. I kept you safe. I kept you clean. I soothed you when you cried.
I let you stay up late and watch TV. Do you know that you mean the world to me? I argued with you as you grew. You formed opinions of your own.
I tried teaching you right from wrong, and to treat others with respect. I hugged you and kissed you at least three times a day, every day.
Remember greeting each other after school, or hugging and kissing me good-night? I wanted to correct the behaviours of my parents, who were, and still are, non-demonstrative. When you were two, I wrote you a song. I made it up on the spot, while brushing your teeth, to distract you.I lost my father to Alzheimers.
I lost my mother to cancer.
Both forms of death are lingering. My mother was much more pragmatic than my father and probably would have been put off by any comedy regarding Alzheimers, my guess is that my father would not have been put off by the comedy.

This is a letter to my daughter on her 29th birthday. She is now 30 something and the years just keep flying by! Dearest Rachel, Today is your 29th birthday. “An Open Letter to My Teen Daughter Who Is In The Next Room ” is a short blog by Margarita Gokun Silver.
The article takes the form of a letter written by a mother who clearly loves her daughter, but who (I suspect) feels quite frustrated with many aspects of her teenager’s behaviour.
My blog is Margarita’s letter reimagined, using the communication skills from a particular parenting. An open letter to my boys regarding Technology and their use of it: Based on our not-so-positive experience with technology, and the resulting potholes and speedbumps experienced at the intersection of Father’s Way North and Son’s Trail South, I thought it healthy to put some rules in place -- and in writing -- and then nail them to the door.
If you have a daughter and you want to touch her heart, this is a good way to do it. How to Write a Letter to Your Daughter She Will Never Forget — Charisma Magazine Facebook.
