To My Active Baby,
Daddy and I have been packing all day in preparation for our move tomorrow.
We weren’t able to get the money together for a new apartment, so we are putting almost everything in storage and staying with my mother for a month or until we can save up enough for a decent apartment.
It’s been a bit of a chore trying to get things done with a toddler in the house, because you require a lot of attention.
Every time I finish packing up a box, I turn around to find you unpacking it.
I tried putting you inside of a box with some toys, but you weren’t very fond of that. You started crying, so I had to take you out.
I don’t really have much to say today, because I am really tired and you’re crying, right now.
I hope that this short journey back to my mom’s house proves to be a good time for you. I know that your grandma is super excited to have you around every day and waking her up in the middle of the night.
I can only hope that you never have to experience the financial difficulties that your Daddy and I have had to contend with this past year.
Hopefully, he can find a full-time job, soon, and Organic Melinda takes off, so that we can provide you with the stable home that you deserve.
Mami Loves You
About this Series:
In honor of Latino Heritage Month, I will write 30 letters for 30 days to my beautiful daughter. This series is entitled, Mami Loves You. In these letters, I will tell her about the world around her, and reflect on her development.
Each Tuesday and Thursday, I will honor a Latina woman that I believe is a great role model for my daughter to admire. Through these letters, I pay homage to my role as a mother, and I will teach my daughter about one of the cultures that has birthed her.
