Hey boys! It's been a while. Oh how I miss this.... writing here on this blog nearly everyday. Writing about you, for you and to you. Of course it was all so easy before daddy went back to work full-time. A blog entry was part of my normal daily routine. Sitting down at the end of everyday sharing with the world whatever great adventures or experiences may have unfolded.
As we approach the year anniversary of me going back to work full-time. I just wanted to take a minute to write you and let you know first , how proud I am of you on how you've adjusted. It wasn't easy but you did it. You adapted and adjusted as best as (at the time) any 3 yr. old could. Watching you grow and develop and matriculate and progress through pre-school has also made me proud. Not being with you nearly everyday as I was when I was not working has given me a greater appreciation for your uniqueness and individuality. You are two distinctly different but remarkable human beings. I still find myself utterly amazed sometimes that I'm part responsible for two amazing boys.
|Our last Target Weds lunch.... Oh the memories|
You wont believe this but for the first few weeks when I started working I would go eat lunch at Target on Weds just like we used to every week when daddy got his unemployment check. I miss that. I miss so much.... I miss our weekly trips to Target, morning walks, and park visits. I miss cooking breakfast and making lunch.... I miss rocking you to sleep and even I miss changing those stinky diapers. Being with you boys during that time was some of the most amazing times in my life. Moments I'll treasure forever. I am thankful everyday for the opportunity I got to spend that time with you. I do believe it was meant to be.
I can't say that I'll be doing what I do forever. But do know I will always dedicate myself and do everything I can to provide for you now and your future. I want you to have most of the things you need and a few of the things you want. I have to work TWICE as hard of course because twins aren't cheap.
|Oh what a life....|
Don't give up and I won't either. I can guarantee that. Of course you know how much I love you. In a few months you will be embarking on an educational journey as you start kindergarten. I have the utmost confidence you will do well. It's going to be a time period in your life that is exciting and amazing. You will learn so much during these years. I'll be learning with you too.
So I close in simply saying.. . Thank you WiMi, thank you so much for the honor, and privilege of sharing the many joys from the times we've spent together and most importantly for being able to be your father. Remember what I tell you each and ever day about looking out and protecting each other. Always thinking about you.
With much love,
