A letter to my daughter… 3AM Mum responds
My beautiful wife sent me this letter this week, responding to “A letter to my daughter”. I had to share.
It’s taken me a couple of days to be able to write this response to my dear husband after reading his beautiful letter to our special angel Yve.
The past two years has been an amazing ride with many ups and downs that go along with bringing up 4 wonderful individuals. I wanted to take this moment to thank him for making every single day during those 2 years memorable and special for both me and my kids. They have had the opportunity to get to know you, grow with you and be inspired by you. I have watched you tackle the hectic routine of getting them to school, organizing play dates, doctors appointments, cooking dinner, swimming, violin, guitar, tutoring lessons, shopping, a morning coffee catch up or a quick round of golf! I have watched you struggle with those routines but as you said 2 years ago you wanted to experience the whole package and do it your way. I wouldn’t have broken her leg or left her in the car park at school but that was your way ;P.
You prioritized things so differently to me like played with the kids in the backyard over cleaning the house, organized a play date over cleaning the house or watched Ellen over cleaning the house.
You have done an amazing job and i know our children are better people for this. I have been able to achieve some personal and professional goals along the way. For this I want to thank you and tell you what an amazing father and husband you are. Yve has survived day care this week (I wasn’t sure if you would) and I know the next couple of months are going to be a struggle for you but know this - a job is just a job and who knows what’s around the corner so lets just enjoy the journey together and see what happens. You never know golf and coffee may be back on your weekly schedule before you know it.
Thanks everyone for your continued support of 3AM Dad.
