Our day care (one of the best home day cares in the Arcadia district if you ask me!) started a new thing with the kids every week where they practice writing letters to their mom and dad (or whoever they want really) and then we write a letter back. Of course the first person Jace wrote a letter to was Rob. Go figure. Funny thing is, when Rob opened his letter, there were only a couple scribbles on the dotted lines, lol! Seems Jace is still too young to write out anything but it’s the thought that counts, right?! I think he liked writing alongside his friends and picked his Daddy to write to. Since Jace can’t read yet (obviously), our day care encouraged us to still write a letter back so she can read it out loud to him. Rob took this to heart, all the way, and wrote our little Jace his first letter back. And because this is my blog and I write about whatever I want, I decided to post a picture of Rob’s letter back so I could remember it. Rob even included a photo and a couple pieces of candy. I think this is such a great idea for parents who miss their kiddos while they’re at work. I can totally attest to the fact that leaving your kids with someone else during the day is hard. But writing little notes to each other, almost like you were in grade school together, helps them know how much you love them and are thinking about them. I hope Jace realizes how proud we are of him in every way, and that we are always thinking of him. Well, just thought to share this idea with you in case you want to try it out!
