Out of the Mouths of Babes…

Mom called me early this morning to finalize plans for this evening. Mid-sentence, she bursts out laughing, recalling that last night, while cleaning the house, she found letters I wrote to my dad.

Letter #1, Lola-age ~ 8ish

I’m paraphrasing because I don’t have the letter in front of me, and, well, I wrote it about 20 years ago.

Dear Dad,

As you know, I’m a lot like you… when we are in the grocery store, I try to walk like you… when mom drives me crazy, I look up to you. When you drive me crazy, I look up to the dog.

Letter #2, Lola-age ~ 20

Context: Dad’s 50th birthday

Front of card: It’s time to start taking left-hand turns from the right-hand lane

Message from me inside of card: Now you can blame on age how mom’s been driving her whole life.
