A Letter from Meg

While Dad is gone, I encourage my kids to write him letters. This is a recent one from Meg, telling him what she's been up to lately. Enjoy!

Sunday, April 5

Hi Daddy. It's Meggy. Mom thought I should tell you what I have been up to lately. I have decided that since I have turned 2, I am a big girl now and should be able to do big girl things on my own. I like to sit on the potty now, but not go. Just to play with the "paper towels" hanging there next to the seat. I like to take off my own pants, ask mom to take off the rest and go climb on the potty. One day while mom was doing dishes and Bug was playing Wii, I went into the bathroom, locked the door (a girl needs her privacy) and decided to do some washing. I played in the water for a while before mom realized what was going on and tried to get me out, only to discover the locked door. Ha, ha, I am a big girl now.

I don't like to stay in my bed anymore. I want to sleep in the big bed, the Grandma bed, in my room. I like to climb up there and bounce. Mom says I can't sleep there yet, but I have woken up there a couple of times in the past few weeks. My nightlight is broken and that means mom leaves the door open when she puts me to bed so I don't get scared, but it also means I can get up whenever I want. I like Mom to put me back to bed 7 or 8 times a night. Super Nanny doesn't know what she's talking about when she says to be consistent and keep doing that, I just keep getting up anyway. If Mom's still up, I should be too.

On a related note, a while back Mom and Bug had a Harry Potter marathon and watched 3 movies in one sitting. It was too much for me, but I liked the popcorn. The next morning, I woke up early, before everyone else because they stayed up way too late. I didn't go wake up Mom, I was trying to give her a little break. I went into the kitchen, pushed a chair to the counter, got the popcorn bowl with the rest of the popcorn in it and then I spied my ear drops. I know I need them still, they make my ears tickle and I like them, so I grabbed them too. When Mom got up she saw that I had gotten my own breakfast, popcorn, and added something special to it. Eardrops. I couldn't get them in my ears myself, so I decided I could sprinkle them on my breakfast and they would do just as well. Not exactly tasty and Mom wasn't as happy as I thought she would be. Mommy is silly sometimes.

That was the same day I broke out with the rash. It was a huge, red, awful rash all over. It was owie and made me unhappy. Mommy said it's Fifth's Disease and it would go away on it's own. It still isn't gone today, and it's been a week. Hurry it up already.

I also went to visit Big Grandma, Grandpa Duane, Uncle Rob and Sheri and see the cat, the trees, and eat ice cream. That was fun, but on the way home Mommy said there was a problem on the pass and we just had to sit there in the car for over 3 hours, not moving. It was awful. I got to go and play on the freeway though. There was a back up over 15 miles long, and we were towards the middle. Something about avalanche control gone bad, but I don't know what that meant. We did make it home finally and I was SO glad to be out of that carseat.

I miss you Daddy. I keep asking where you are. Mom tells me you are on a trip on the boat, but I know I saw you get on the bus and I don't know anything about a boat, so I don't know what she's talking about. I can't wait to have you home with us again. Loves you Daddy. Be Safe.

Avalanche control gone bad? Well, I guess it's lucky you were back a ways!

I guess when they tried to do avanlache control it got a little out of hand and pushed one of the concrete barriers across the freeway. Then they had to clear the snow and fix the barrier before traffic could go through again. What a mess.
