Open Letter To My Girls

Dear Girls,
This letter is a long time coming. I may have felt this for years, but you deserve to see this is writing. Sometimes knowing isn't enough. I'm putting this out there because you're worth it.
I'm sorry that I haven't always been kind to you. Having you as a teenager made me feel less popular, less attractive. I can say that I was young, but it still doesn't take the sting of the harsh words I used about you away. I wasted a lot of time resenting you, a lot of time on the whole hating "your very existence" teen agnst bullshit. I should have respected myself more, respected you more; instead I was embarassed and hid you!
It wasn't until I was in my twenties that I finally "got" how great you are. How perfect you are. How perfect you "both" are! I know, I know, you're twins but you're not the same!
You've been unwavering in your support. When I feel down, you're still perky. You're flirty in a Mae West "come up and see me" kinda way. You hold yourself up high. But most of all you girls are healthy!
So, thank you, ladies! I am proud of you! You may be a 'B' but to me you will always be DD's!


  1. no one ever gave us a manual on how to handle being a parent + you just do the best you can and hope you don't screw up your kids too much! :)

  2. PERFECT post...I have 5 children and had my first at 21...which wasn't really THAT young but it's young enough.

    You're marvelous!

  3. Um, you see...she meant her...nevermind...
