About my serious side

Not to break the spell or spoil the fun, but you've probably figured out my real name isn't Dummy.

The CTD Diaries is my playground. No one tells the truth in their diaries anyway so I figured I should find another place to get real, where the head lights aren't so bright. I originally thought this would be a good place to post my creative writing, but I think this is just a good place to tell the truth.

Dear Wonderful Future Kids . . .

Mother's Day is cool because my hub and kids always make me breakfast and then go around the table saying what they love about me. This year I was a little surprised that all my kids said that they love that I am such a happy mom. My daughter even said that I am funny and fun and she loves that I am always laughing.

I don't feel like I am that way, but I would be so thrilled if I am remembered that way by my children.

I was also surprised when I found this cute open document on the computer. Apparently my daughter was asked to write it as an English assignment, but it was a fun treat to read it on Mother's Day because I remember writing similar letters to my posterity when I was her age, only mine were more gloom and doom and warnings about the corrupt state of the wicked wicked world.

I am so thankful that my daughter has an optimistic eye on the future, and doesn't take life so darn seriously!

I thought it was so cute that I asked her if I could share it on this blog:

Dear Wonderful Future Kids,

Just wanted to let you know that you guys are going to love life because I’m your mother, and don’t worry I’m planning on marrying a great guy. We are going to have so much fun, but of course you are going to learn a lot too. Oh, and you have super tight grandparents. It’s hard to know what to say except tell you how stoked I am to have kids. I can't wait to protect you as babies, remember the cute toddler moments, and laugh through the awkward teenage years.

As I’m writing this I’m still in the immature teenage period. Most of my friends have started dating, but not me. I'm still 15, but I’m okay with it because I think boys have cooties. Future daughters, you aren’t allowed to date until you're 25, and boys you better treat those ladies respectfully!

Look, you don’t even exist yet, and I’ve already made ridiculous rules.

I’ll support you in all of your interests….even band. I can get over my fear of the band room, just because I love you guys so much. I want you to believe that you can do anything, it just takes work. Work is hard, but it’s nothing to be afraid of and it can be fun. Just gotta love what you’re doing. All I know is that you guys are going to be stubborn and tall, unless I marry a short guy…not likely. I’m stubborn and give everyone a hard time, so you’ll probably cause me all the pain I caused others.


Your favorite and only mother,

P. S Smile and Be Happy!

I love that letter!

Just so you know, my word verifier is "chilly".

Wow. That letter is so sweet. I recently found one that I had written to my future husband, and it was equally as sweet and innocent, and yet somehow insightful. It's funny how our perspective changes.
