I'm so proud of you for how you are coming along with learning to read. I feel like your reading ability has improved significantly just in last 4-6 weeks. Let's keep it up! ETA: I was so happy to get an email from your teacher today to say your math has really improved too!! SO PROUD of you!!
Thank you for suggesting having DS and DD come to your house this summer and paying your youngest DD (age 16) to be your assistant rather than having her come to our house to babysit. I think DS and DD will have so much more fun at your house and I will worry about them less (no offense). And I was already starting to stress about meal planning, so your suggestion relieves that!
Sincerely, Grateful client
I was also SO PROUD of you too yesterday! It was pretty cool to see that you completed (and you correctly answered the problems) your double-digit math workbook at school, and you were the 2nd first-grader in the ENTIRE 1st grade (5 classes) to do that! Way to go!! Maybe you have a future in engineering like your grandpa.

I hope that you can get over your anxiety about starting new things. When you refused to participate in baseball practice last night because Dad wasn't there, it reeeallly frustrated me and I know I wasn't very compassionate. You know 1/2 the kids on the team and one of the coaches is your basketball coach. I'm completely stumped. But I hope you're able to have fun once Dad can get out there and help coach.
Only one week and tax season is over! You can do this for a few more days.
Dear DD I'm sorry you are just now realizing the limitation on what you can eat due to all of your temp crowns. But no we can't save the package of fruit snacks you got at school for a reward until all your grown up teeth come in. The mom with just bad new
Dear DH Get your act together. I know you are upset/stressing about your parents and their split/divorce but not eating/sleeping and making yourself sick with a man cold isn't helping. I need my sleep Wife
Dear WP tax accountants and families less than a week to go!!!
Dear Mom, I know you have dementia and depression and stuff but you need to kick it up a gear. I am pretty constantly drowning in some facet of my life. That means my bandwidth to take on unpleasant tasks (like beg you to come to dinner and then jolly you through it) is like, not existent. I want to spend time with you and be a good daughter, but meet me halfway here and bounce back a little bit please. Your daughter that loves you but honestly loves the more functional (but still dementia and depressed) you a little bit more just saying
Dear kitchen faucet, Remember how DH and I said we'd replace you in two weeks when he's on vacation? Do not appreciate you jumping the gun and bursting all over my kitchen while we were at work today. F u. Signed, Grumpy homeowner with a wet house
Dear squirrels in my attic, F u too. No love, Me
Dear homeownership, Not loving you this week. Neither is my bank account. Signed, Broke

I know you have all the time headaches and are stressed but your fuse needs to get a little longer with the two year old. Sure she is emotional and annoying but she is two. It is what it is. I'd like to be able to get irritated or vent without always having to be the less angry parent. I feel like I have to always be calm and happy bc you are so frequently on edge. I'm also the one getting up with the baby at night and still going to work. Hearing the baby cry for the few minutes it takes for me to go feed her does not equal actually being up for 30 minutes in the middle of the night.
Love your more tired than you but still not yelling at the toddler to finish her dinner wife
Dear self If you want to lose these last 10-15 lbs of post partum fluff any time soon, perhaps you should stop buying candy and crap to eat all the time. Just a thought.
Love your trying not to be so self destructive self
Dear Me Crap, Easter is this weekend! You need to find time to run out and buy supplies for DD's basket. We're giving her all the supplies to make the Delish Easter carrot brownie thing and then will spend the afternoon making the desert. Busy me who at least knows what I need to buy
Dear Mother Nature Can we please stop having winter? Yes, it is in the 50s now but the down pouring rain can give a little. I want sunshine and to be able to wear spring clothes Cranky vitamin D deficient me
Dear H Why are you texting me and saying that you are going to bed at 5:40pm? Signed wife we needs her sleep
Please be nice to the new little 8th grader working out with you all. He is a sweet kid and this is both of our fist go a public schools and high school. Don't make mamma bear come out because my son assures me that is embarrassing.
I am just going to go with this bonding thing you all have going on. For the past week, we're I go , you go and we have all ended up in bed together every night watching HGTV. I know this won't last forever, so I'm going with it.

Dear DS, I've always known you've preferred mamaw over anyone, even me, and that you liked her best. You didn't have to actually say that you like her more than me though. Love, your mom who took that too seriously probably
Dear self, Quit being so hard on yourself. Not EVERYTHING is your fault. Sure, it's your business and family that creates about 90% of the stress in your marriage, but whatever. You're doing the best you can. That's going to have to be enough. Love, yourself who thinks you might be getting close to needing to make a change
I know you are unhappy at work and frustrated at life right now. Remember our plans. Change is coming you just have to stick it out here one more year. Then hopefully you are on to bigger and better things. Thank you so much last night for listening to me when I said I needed help and actually helping. You have no idea how nice it was last night to come home to laundry being folded and almost done, you unloading groceries, and feeding our child while I cooked for the rest of the week.
I love you and you are a great husband and father don't let work get you down.
Your other half who always has your back.
Dear working parents,
If you haven't tried online grocery shopping you need to start. If you have a problem with the produce they will fix it for you. (never had a problem with produce) It saves me so much time and reduces my stress level. ( I hate crowds) Also saves me money. No impulse buying of junk food.
fellow working mom who does all the grocery shopping.
Dear DH, I am SO HAPPY that you are finally jumping on the outsourcing bandwagon. If it took my surgery to spur you along, so be it. Hiring someone for a spring clean up for the yard is a genius idea, glad "you" thought of it. Same goes for the squirrel situation. Maybe house cleaning could be "your" next big idea? Love, Wife who will milk this recovery as long as necessary to get out of these projects
No grocery delivery here either. We do have car side pick up at Fred Meyer which sells the Kroger brand but they are one of the most expensive grocery stores.
Dear T-ball coach Can you give us a little bit more notice than an hour before practice on if we have practice or not and where it is and how long it will be. Crazed WM who has to coordinate with the sitter
Why oh why can't you figure out how to poop on the potty? You sat there for 20 minutes today after Daddy caught you hiding. Then 5 minutes after you got off the potty, you pooped in your pull up.
Please, please poop on the potty.
Love, Mommy Who Wants to Stop Buying Diapers
Please stop peeing the bed every night. And please don't get discouraged because your brother who is almost two years younger than you wakes up dry virtually every morning. At this point, I'm thinking of buying a pee alarm for you to wear at night.
Love, Mommy Who Also Wants to Stop Buying Pull Ups
mommyatty - DD is 9 in pull-ups and has a bladder disorder -- not saying that's the case but -- I wish someone would have told me to just book her with a specialist. The test was simply peeing above a device and diagnosis was made, medication was procured and issues were mostly solved.
I have another one
Dear Work I am so grateful for the early release!!! I have errands to run and a backyard to tidy before we host an egg hunt Saturday night. So excited! Working mom with "free time"

Dear DH's extra family, Easter is in 3 days and the day you normally have it is in 2. We have officially reached the point where it's too late to make plans. If you try to make them, do not expect us to be there. We have a 5 week old and 2 Easters plus mass on Sunday. DH is busy all Saturday and I've made plans for some me time that day. Signed, "DIL" that is tired of catering to you
We used to use Peapod when we lived in suburban Chicagoland for online groceries. They are a little annoying in that you have to book your delivery several days out. Now we've moved somewhere with HyVee and they will deliver, often even the next day. With them, if I spend $100 the delivery is free. And with 4 of us, I pretty much always am spending that amount.
