Today I am going to share my children's Valentine's Day card from my parents with you...
On the right side of the card:
Dear Big Boy, Jelly Bean, Little Boy, Hercules, The Little Lady, and Baby Girl,
Happy Valentines' Day to all of you! We love you and miss you The Whole World.
Hugs and kisses,
Grandma and Grandpa
On the left side of the card:
Because you are the oldest, a very Special, and Happy Valentine's Day to you, Big Boy. We are so proud of everything you do, both at home, and at school.
We love you so much and can't wait to see you!
One of my biggest pet peeves with my parents is the attention they lavish on my oldest child, while making the rest of my children feel left out. It isn't just the Valentine's Day card, it is the invitation for only my oldest to visit, it is the big expensive present for BB's birthday and sending everyone else a dollar...maybe.
Perhaps I am just particularly sensitive to it because my own grandparents had their favorites, and I was not among them. It sucks to feel like you aren't good enough and not know why.
So, tell me...what do you think bloggy world? Do any of you deal with this problem?
I am just now seeing this card as it wasn't even mailed to our house, it was sent to my aunt.
From my daughter's test:
An average 5 year old weighs ____.
a.) 20 lbs.
b.) 40 lbs.
c.) 70 lbs.
She wrote, "D. How should I know what an average 5 year old weighs? My three year old brother is over 50 lbs., I guess the answer is 'B' but in my experience 'C' is more accurate."
Now, I am certain that she wasn't switched at birth. She's mine.
Fuck your Foggy magic.
