I already mentioned before that my almost-five-year-old son likes giving me letters and love notes. When he asks for his coloring pens, crayons, ballpens, etc., he will always have something for me. This was the latest I-love-you note he gave me. He made this the other day after he felt I’m not mad at him anymore.
You see, from noon until afternoon last Wednesday, I gave him the cold shoulder. That’s because he wouldn’t cooperate. I have a lot of backlog at work, and I need a little bit of peace and quiet in the house to make up for all that I’ve missed.
I told him not once but many times not to be too noisy while he played but he never listened. He actually made more noise after that, which made me really upset. When I cooled off, he approached me and told me he’s sorry and he gave me this note; he asked his yaya to spell the words for him.
When he doesn’t write love notes for Mommy, he simply draws whatever he wants and puts “To: Mommy, From: Justin” just like this one.
My son is a sweet boy. He may be hardheaded sometimes, which brings out the monster in me, but he has a way of softening my hardened heart, and that makes me love him even more.
