Early Mother’s Day Gift from my Kids

April 29, 2009 Katja Presnal

I found a letter from my 7-year-old daughter’s backpack. It is dated March 18, 2009 by the school and sent by their school internal mailing system. Which by the way I love – isn’t it great that the school has a mailbox for student mail and they can send each others letters? It’s a letter from brother to sister.

I’ll translate the text for you (Kris is 6 and in Kindergarten):

Dear Gaby,

You have a lot of good ideas.
I love you. Hugs and kisses.
Do you want to play Legos after school?

Sincerely, Kristian

My kids are each others best friends, and I just think this letter for big sister is beyond cute.

Could I have asked for a better Mother’s Day gift? I don’t think so.

  1. Funny thing was I always thought the affection kids showed to parents was the most heart-melting, until I saw the affection they bestowed to each other. I still lap it up when I see them say nice things to each other … of course I wish it was not peppered with all that squabbling.

    What a sweet letter! I hope Jasper will treat his big sister like that when he’s older…

  4. Oh how sweet! I wish my kids liked each other that much. LOL Of course on Valentine’s Day my oldest was able to send her younger sister a Valentine’s Day card with sucker through the school.

    I think that letters that kids write are so cute…I found a letter my son wrote to me the other day. He’s 9 now and he was just learning cursive when he wrote it so he was probably just turning 8. He wrote “Dear Mommy, Look for Forrest.” Forrest is his big black stuffed bear which he had misplaced and he couldn’t find him before he left for school that morning so he wanted me to look for him when I got off of work so of course I saved the letter. It’s priceless to me as a mother. Your girls will love to see that letter too when they get older and hopefully they are still the best of friends.
