Dear principal of this school,
Why do you have a staff meeting scheduled this morning? I don't want to spend time listening to random stuff. I have about a billion things to do (although I could be doing that instead of using TB). Please let us out early so I can do more.
Your music teacher
Thanks for doing most of the to do list on Monday. Don't ignore the list the rest of the week, though!
love, your wife
Mama has a cold or allergies - so go to bed earlier tonight, and no random wake ups like last night...
Please sleep!! This getting up like you are a newborn thing is SO not working for mama! Daddy's away on another business trip and mommy is tired. Please sleep?
Your exhausted mama. You are so lucky you are cute!
Quit being lazy and get DS back into his own bed! It's been 2 months. The babies will be here soon and you need to nip this in the butt before you regret it!
Please sleep for at least 30 more mins. Mama is enjoying her coffee and quiet time :)
Dear Busy Body at Work,
Maybe you should sit back and think about why you were the last one to be told about my pregnancy. And my reaction when you said "I just know this one is a boy, because [my dead brother] would want it that way." Now you find out we're having a boy, and you're first reaction is "I knew it. And his name will be G[name of my brother]"
No it won't be. It will be roughly a year between my brother's passing and the birth of my son. There's a good chance the anniversary of his death, will be my son's birthday. I have no desire to reuse my brothers name ( That he didn't even like! ) it's way too close in time. The name we have chosen, Graham David, honors my brother, my dad, and FIL. It's the perfect name for us. And if you say one more time "But it would really just be so special to name him [brother's name]" I will punch you in the face.
-Increasingly irritated with you

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for finally STTN again last night! The 7 nights of 4am screaming was killing me. And BTW, you have done amazing in your big girl bed and I am so proud of you!
I am very proud of how well you both did with the new babysitter last night. I am especially proud that you both went to bed without any fuss EARLIER than you usually do for your dad and me. You are such big girls!
Great job trying the new fitness classes at the Y -- 4 new classes in 3 weeks! Keep it up and let's find some abs again!

Get up off the couch and get your cell phone out of the car! Even though you can barely hold your eyes open, you don't have time for a nap. You have to read for bible study tonight, and put some clothes in the awasher, and take a shower, and the list goes on.
Dear Idiot Friend,
I wish I knew why you got DD a "Monster's ABC" book for her birthday and gave it to her and read it to her while you were watching her for 30 minutes. Now my kid is terrified and I just had to spend the last hour listening to her say MONSTER 400 fu.cking times. I cannot rationalize with a barely 2 year old. She's hysterical and I want to punch your face repeatedly.You have an 8 year old. Use your brain!
Your beyond furious "friend",
Dear Pollen and other allergens,
GO THE EFF AWAY already!!! I am so sick of not being able to breathe at night and waking up with my eyes so blood shot my students' parents probably think I'm on something.
I know I'm a "plus size" gal, but you married me that way and I've had your child....so if you make one more backhanded remark about my size, I'm gonna deck you!!! You could be supportive of the fact that I've been working out all summer and have continued as school has started and that I'm trying to make us healthier meals!! Oh and uh.......you don't have a lot of room to talk, as you only work 3 days a week and you don't exercise and won't even go see a doctor!
your SEXY AS HELL wife,who is also a bit worried about you.
Mama is sorry you had an ear infection, but super glad you are feeling better and sleeping all night again!
Your sleep-loving mama
