My Buddy

November 22, 2011

Dear Roman,

Just a quick note to tell you how much I love you. We’re in a really good place right now you and I. It feels super good for your mama to have her buddy back- that’s YOU. After Charlotte was born our relationship took a bit of a beating. I knew it initially, but then I think I sort of got used to the way we interacted and the little bit of distance became normal. But 19 months later I realized ┬áthat you and I are really close again. Like you’re holding my hand when we take walks and cuddling with me when I read books at night. Hanging out getting a coffee together can turn into an impromptu “date” as you call them. You’ll say, “This is so much fun Mom. Getting a pastry and hanging out together.” I think so too Roman. In fact sometimes I think about how I can’t wait to know who you’ll be 20 years from now and I just hope I’m cool enough for you so that you’ll still want to get coffee together.
