For My Littlest G.

Dear Troy,

You have had a big year.  While you are a much easier toddler compared to Satan your sister at this age, that is not to say we haven’t had our ups and downs.  You have been seen by more doctors these last twelve months than your sister has seen in nine years.  Everyone warned me that boys were much different than girls, I guess we should have warned our insurance provider as well.

This past week, you completely mastered the potty training situation and I can’t say I had anything to do with it.  I did buy you new “under-dares” and cheer like a jackass when you made any sort of progress, but other than that, you decided to do this all on your own.  You now run and find me after any sort of toilet related success and pull my hand and say, “Come see!” and we celebrate.  And wash your hands.  Please know you can always, always count on me to celebrate with you, for you, no matter what.  I mean, maybe when you do something other than putting your potty in the toilet.  This is cute and all, but I’m thinking when you are in high school maybe we can celebrate for good grades or something.

When you wake up the morning, either next to my bed or in my bed, (let’s work on this), the first thing out of your mouth is always, “Where’s Zoe?”.  I think you know how incredibly lucky you are to have such a kick ass sister, she loves you to pieces.  Sometimes you call her Mom and that’s ok, I know she helps you out with stuff, like opening those godforsaken drinkable yogurts aka crack that the two of you love so much.  Sometimes you accidentally call me Nana and that is really not ok.  I will prefer for my grandchildren to call me Awesome, but we will cross that bridge when we come to it.

I would also like to thank you for playing with your toys and not bothering anything ever.  Do you know when your sister was two she locked herself in my bathroom and squirted out an entire brand new tube of toothpaste and smeared it all over the mirror/counter/cabinets/floor?  I like to give credit where credit is due and you were a seriously awesome two year old.  I can barely stand it when you want us to play, you say “Come play for me”.  Don’t ever learn the correct way to use with and for, I’m seriously fine with that.  Of course, that will probably cut back on the cheering for good grades that we talked about, but you can count to 15, so you are well on your way to academic success.  I just won’t focus on the fact that you learned your numbers by watching Nascar with your dad.

Someone recently made a comment about how lucky my children were to have a mother like me (they didn’t know me that well).  I actually could not disagree more.

I’m the lucky one.


Happy 3rd Birthday little dude.  You are sunshine.


Momma (and Daddy. Even though he didn’t help write any of this letter because he has trouble with feelings and stuff. I’m certain he feels the same.)
