Dear Charlie Nine

I just turned 41.  I don’t know what to tell you now.  Where do I begin here?  You’re getting really smart.

Dear Codie

Dear Codie, Have I written you before? I hope so. I think I have. But I was better at writing Charlie letters, I’ll admit that. Sorry for that.

Dear Charlie 7

Hey kid,  I barely have the time to write this.  You just graduated VPK and are starting kindergarten in a couple of months.  You’re so smart and learning so much every day.  You’re in the phase of asking Google to play songs for you all the time.  Friend Like Me by Will Smith Pressure from… Read More »Dear Charlie 7
