Noah, I have some things I want to tell you. First of all, do you know that your mother has known me longer than any other friend I know now? Since 1st grade…its true. We went to elementary school, middle and high school together, and university together. We have always been very different from one another. But, the most important things…well, we have those in common and that is what really matters. I love her and subsequently I love you just as much.
Also, your father is one of the funniest people I have ever met. I know, he may not seem funny and hip now…but that is only because you cannot appreciate his humor and intelligence yet. Give it time.
Yes, your grandfather will cry at every milestone in your life. But remember, he is no wimp. He is just that confident and comfortable in his manhood that he can shead a tear with pride.
Listen to grandma Betty, she knows her stuff.
And when you get older, we will go on adventures. I will teach you about what good music is and give you the best books to read and show you how to draw beautiful pictures. But most importantly – I will tell you lots of secrets about mom and dad, I promise.
