My Mom Thinks It's Stupid That I'm Writing Letters To My Kids
So I decided I wanted to do something cool for my kids for their 18th birthdays and my fiance for our wedding night (besides the obvious) so I started writing them letters in journals. My daughter is 5 and my son is 8 months. I'm keeping track of all the little moments that are important to me and to them (first soccer game, first day of kingergarten...yada yada, yada) and give it to them on their 18th birthday's. My fiance's I'm just going to write him a bunch of love letters basically counting down the days to our wedding (only 500 and some to go). I'm not telling any of them, so they will never know until I give them all their notebooks.
My mom thinks it's a terrible idea and none of them will appreciate it but she's agreed never to utter a word. Anyone else think it's a stupid idea?
EDIT: Wow, I haven't been on in 24 hours and I had a featured post. I will have to read through all the replies and I promise I will try and answer everyone.
