Letters! We got letters from both kids! One was fantastic – and one makes my heart hurt. Guess who wrote which?
Here’s my daughter’s letter – full of honesty and excitement and positive thinking. I did so good with her. My husband played a part too, I guess. She commented on the food because I’ve been asking in all my letters. I need to know! I plan on giving her 1,000 kisses when she gets home.
Now for the other letter. My boy must have had a tough week. My husband read the note and laughed – hard. I read the note and felt sick to my stomach. I read the note and felt like driving to get him that very second. I read the note and had some wine.
Only 3 things kept me from scooping him out of camp today and tucking him into bed with me:
1) the letter was sent on Tuesday. I’m hoping things got better and happier.
2) homesickness is common among campers the first few days, it’s normal, it doesn’t mean he feels unloved, abandoned and alone.
3) my husband wouldn’t let me go get him.
Here’s his letter. Notice the line about crying. Twice. Lord. Help. Me.
(not sure what he means by losing his “hamper” and that I’ll have to wash the clothes? sob sob)
