We are so excited to have you come visit for Christmas! But, being that you don’t get to visit us often and I am already five-years-old and my brother and sister are only three-years-old, we do feel the need to forewarn you of a few stages we are in. We have yet to learn the art of volume control. Our settings are either loud or asleep. And when we’re excited, like around Christmas or your arrival or Tuesdays, our loud settings can increase. We also find bum-bums hilarious. In fact, they are endlessly hilarious. And when they are naked, the hilarity increases. We can’t wait to show you our bum-bum dance. One of us, we won’t mention who he is, loves to demonstrate how Daddy pees standing up and Mommy pees sitting down. This can go on for hours to his great delight. Just smile and pretend it’s interesting. We have a special craft to do with you when you’re here, providing Mommy gets it prepped, whatever that means. It has lots of ‘parkles on it. We can’t wait to read lots of books with you. We especially love to constantly interrupt with questions that will be answered in the next sentence had we let you finish reading. We still make a big mess when we eat and we can’t wait to see how much your eyes roll. We also love to have spontaneous dance parties between bites. You’re going to love it! I am in a “very curious” stage, so Mommy keeps saying. This means I get to ask lots and lots of questions. Please try to keep up (Mommy often lags behind). We are currently in a big sharing stage. We love to share turning things off and on. Every day we get to share turning the Christmas tree lights on. First, I turn them on, then my brother turns them off and on, and then my sister gets to turn them off and on again. This goes for turning the lights off at night, shutting and opening doors, turning the TV off and on, opening and closing the fridge, and turning on and off the faucet. It’s fabulously fun. We still love to color and one of us may constantly ask you if you think it’s beautiful, despite Mommy repeatedly telling us that it doesn’t matter what others think. My brother still loves cars, so we always get to spend a few minutes before bedtime playing “find the taxi” so he can sleep with his favorite car. It’s a hoot! We still have four kitties and Monkey is still as rotten as ever. Mommy worries he’ll never grow out of it. Mommy keeps telling Daddy that we need to make sure the bar is fully stocked before you arrive, whatever that means. And don’t forget to bring your jacket. It’s super super cold here, like 70°. Lots of love, can’t wait to see you! It’s going to be loud loud loud!
