FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS, MY JOB HAS BEEN TO BUILD YOU A SOLID FOUNDATION.
I’VE TAUGHT YOU SO MUCH IN THE PAST 10 YEARS LIKE HOW TO TIE YOUR SHOES, THE IMPORTANCE OF READING, CLEANING UP AFTER YOURSELF, CODING, GRATITUDE, WHY BACON IS THE CANDY OF MEATS, APPRECIATION FOR THE ARTS, AND SO MUCH MORE. ALL OF THIS CAME SECOND NATURE TO ME. TEACHING YOU HOW TO DO SOMETHING WAS EASY FOR ME AND AT TIMES FUN.
BUT RAISING YOU! THIS WAS THE PART THAT KEPT ME UP AT NIGHT, MADE ME WORRY AND QUESTION IF I WAS PARENTING RIGHT.
June 11, 2011 Mikes is 2 years old in this image. It was a nice summer morning so I decided to take him out for a walk after breakfast. At this stage, Mickey was obsessed with keys and often had a pair in his hand everywhere he went.
Micah has been to Pierogi Fest almost every year of his life. This year, he acted as if he was “over it” and didn’t want to participate in any of the activities. He spent most of the day playing Pokemon Go on his phone.
It seems like you’ve been three FOREVER. Your birthday being at the beginning of the year always makes it seems this way. When I wrote my letter to you last year you were just beginning to introduce us to who you really are. Your personality has settled in, you have very firm beliefs (like how orange fruit snacks are disgusting) and a way of doing things in your own independent way.
