The Life of a Super Organized Mum

Thursday, December 24, 2009

I know I say it a lot on this blog.

I know I say it a lot on this blog and you are probably sick of hearing it by now. But it really is the small things in life that make it amazing and worthwhile and will create moments that you will remember forever, like Flynn getting ever so excited about making cupcakes with mummy.So on that note on Christmas Eve 2009 I want to share with you a letter a wrote to my gorgeous boy.

Dearest Flynn,

It is Christmas Eve 2009 and on this special holiday there are so many things I want to say to you. Is has been an amazing year for us as a family and so much has changed since last year. In all that has happened you have been so adaptable and always willing to come along with whatever new adventure we have planned for you.

Your language is amazing now and you are starting to construct your own sentences and have your own opinion about things- it is amazing how much you have changed in this last year. You love going to daycare/school now and have fun there with all of your friends playing trucks and making crafts. You also still equally LOVE having your Nanna and Grandma over to look after you during the week, this is still such a novelty for you and you run excitedly squealing to the door when they arrive !!

This year the concept of Christmas has become clearer to you and we have had so much fun this year explaining it all to you and helping you understand the meaning of Christmas. You have participated this year in all of our traditions instead of just watching which is wonderful. The best thing for me has been watching your whole face light up when you see Santa, a Christmas tree or get given a present to open.

We have also spent lots of time towards the end of this year talking about your new baby brother who will be arriving in late May. You have said so many cute things like "I want to get baby brother out now", "I share my grapes with baby brother". You think he is in my belly button and you love to peer in there and see if he is awake and you will talk and wave to him in mummy's tummy. I cannot wait for you to meet him and see what an amazing, helpful and loving big brother you will be.

You have taught me a lot this year Flynn, how to be extra patient- we all know you cannot hurry a toddler!! Learning to let go of the mess with a boy has also been a learning curve for me as I have had to stop myself from changing your clothes a thousand times a day and just ignore it. Learning to love the everyday and seemingly mundane moments with a toddler has been great, moments like this photo where you were so happy to be at home with mummy for the day making cupcakes : ) These are the moments I want to remember forever with you, they are so special to me.

Most of all know that mummy and daddy love you more than you will ever know. You are the treasure in our lives and the light in our hearts. We cannot wait to show you the rest of the world. We hope you have an amazing Christmas Day tomorrow and that Santa brings you all of the things you wish for.

Love Mummy

Thanks for sharing that Jade, that was a very special letter filled with lots of love and warmth. I'm sure in years to come that Flynn will treasure that.

Merry Christmas to you and your family and all the best for 2010.
