In a recent Philips Avent event, we were asked to write a letter to our babies. We all started putting our pen to paper. At first, I tried to be funny but as I got to the middle, I became a sissy and started weeping again.
Every year, my husband makes these really nice videos for the kids on their birthdays. The videos summarize the year’s events in 7 minutes. He almost always cries when he edits the videos (admit it, J). I guess writing that letter was a similar experience — personal, emotional and well, it’s about the kids.
So my self-improvement task is inspired by this activity from the Philips Avent event:
I will write a letter to my girls on their birthdays.
It’s like my personal time capsules of them in written form. It shouldn’t take the place of me telling them how I feel face to face but it will be a nice way to capture the events and emotions in my written hand (maybe even have some dried tears preserved on the paper).
