{ ta-dah! } two letters pertaining to this here blog

Dear "Mama's Boys",

Old header

You have been a good blog, and I will miss you.

I will even keep your URL (although to be strictly honest, that is less out of sentimentality and more out of sheer terror that I will lose the posts if I try to mess with it :).

Farewell, sweet blog! Perhaps we will meet again, in the strange cached copy world of Google.

Until then I am yours truly,

Dear DC,

Today is your birthday again! I won't embarrass you by publicly announcing your age (cough cough), but I want you to know--as sort of a funny birthday gift--that this new blog is dedicated to you. I thought for a long time about what it should be called. I came up with all kinds of fun ideas revolving around the theme of 4 boys and 1 girl. And those 4 boys and 1 girl are very, very important to me. But I realized that one day, they will be grown up and gone, and I will look across the table and see only you. Along with that I remembered that it was because of you that all of this wonderful, crazy life had begun.


You are the quiet backbone of our family. You have been the constant strength through the years. Some who know you have said you are one of the most Christ-like people they know, and I agree whole-heartedly. (Take this as a huge compliment that you deserve, because I think I know you better than anyone else in the world!) Yet, you often seem to be in the background. You are always providing and helping and sustaining during this time of heavy needs. By necessity my arms are busy and full with our young children, but I want to remember that sometimes those arms need to be around you, too, even now. :)

Thank you for being the most amazingly selfless person I know. You continually put my comfort and needs first. I'm pretty sure I don't deserve you, but I will spend the rest of my life trying to. Happy Birthday, Cute One!

Love, M
