25 Years –
Dear Mom and Dad,
Today was another super day. I was very good, and my teething pain has decreased so much…. I only had to have Tylenol once. No more low grade fever, and really they seem to be through the gums now. There are two… and they are ADORABLE, as you can imagine. Here I am taking a ride around camp… me riding in my new car is useful in so many ways… with all of Mr. Griffy’s fur shedding, and kitty hair, I make an excellent human swiffer! Nah, not really, but you know me always looking for a way to be helpful here at Camp Nana. Personally, I am all for Nana moving out all the furniture so I can have my own personal “autobahn’.
Poppy and Nana have friends, mommy knows them and daddy met them in April. Ms. Lois and Mr. Dale, they are so nice. They thier children gave them a surprise party for their 25th wedding anniversary and us campers were all invited. It was so odd to think a quarter of a century has passed for them as a couple. And yes, this makes Nana all MUSHY and SENTIMENTAL. Surprisingly no one had to whip out tissues, but if necessary you know I’d be there, with butt wipes in hand for the old sappy woman. Here I am at their surprise party sitting on a swing with Aunt Arrianna… yes, it is August 1rst here in MICHIGAN and YES I NEEDED A JACKET TODAY… it’s Michigan!
PRETTY CUTE HUH? It is my very first time on a real swing!
In twenty five years, you and daddy will be in your forties! Yes, I said it, your forties… Nana and Poppy they will be in their seventies! Do you think that sounds like a long time? WELL BE SURE NOT TO SAY THAT IN FRONT OF NANA, CAUSE SHE WILL INFORM YOU ON EXACTLY HOW FAST THAT MUCH TIME GOES BY….and from what I gather IT’S DARN FAST! Nana looked at the photos of Mr. Dale and Ms. Lois, and she knows how much they have endured through the years, and how they have enjoyed – through the years. She is so happy for them to still be in love, and to have each other. So tonight she is hoping for her kids, and in particularat this time, for the married ones with a princess… THAT LIFE IS GOOD TO THEM, that they find happiness and strength in each other, and more than anything she hopes that one day, I the princess, can throw my mom and dad a totally awesome surprise 25th wedding anniversary party like the one we were at today. If I do, Nana says she will be the one sitting in a corner somewhere…. with a box of tissues, being sappy. She says, that she can hardly recognize herself anymore, she has changed so much in the past few years, but ONE THING FOR CERTAIN, she WILL BE THE SAPPY ONE WITH TISSUES and easy to find, sniffling in a corner.
Please know that I love you both very much. I will write you tomorrow, and know that as always I am your Little Miss Adorable, your daughter,
