A letter to Harris
I want to let you know that I think that you are just great. I love what a hard worker you are and I'm amazed at how willing you are to jump in and "own" a project. Did you realize that you have painted about 75% of the playhouse by yourself over the past two days? I think you love working hard at something. In fact, I think that it gives you joy to work and make something with your hands and heart. And I believe you get a lot of satisfaction out of a job well done. Just like your Dad. Tonight, while we were painting the inside of the playhouse we discussed something that is very important for you to understand. I told you that you were going to be just like your Dad and know how to do a lot of stuff and you said that you got it from your Dad and your Grandpa and that you would teach your son (and I reminded you that you could teach your daughter too!). It's important to remember how much others can teach us. While we were talking and working I was reminded of how proud of you I really am. I love you.~ Mom
P.S. Could you please pretend that you didn't notice that after repeatedly telling you not to let your brush drip it was I who kept dripping paint everywhere!
