Last night Shelby and I had a sleepover. Oh, you don't know Shelby? You must be new here... because I am SURE I have blogged about my mini-me before.
But, just in case... here's my girl:
So... yes... Shelby came over for a sleepover last night. And as time passed we went from watching a princess movie to coloring to using a pencil on plain computer paper ("paper like you"). As she sat with her paper, she said, completely out of the blue, "I am going to write Tommy a letter because I miss him."
I am not sure that my nieces ever really talk about Tommy unless I am around, and rarely do I initiate the topic of conversation. (Someone explain to me how they know he is "at war," when NO ONE told them that?) Naturally they relate my presence to Tommy... so I assume that these days they relate my presence to a lack of Tommy.
So back to the story.
Yes, Shelby says "I am going to write Tommy a letter."
Well, ya'll. This is her letter:
She chose to write him the letter O.
Do I even have to explain to you how much joy my nieces bring to my life? :)
Tommy, we ALL miss you!!! So much!
