I finally got around to cleaning out the home office, and that's when I came across these gems. When your kids write you notes, you save them forever. I have every note they ever wrote me when they were small, but these are when they were much, much older. When I first moved into an apartment after my divorce in 2006, both of my kids lived with me. My daughter was the first to move out a few months later, then my son moved out about a year after that. During the time they both lived with me, they would write me notes and in these notes, they argued over who loved me more and who was the better child. One would start the note, then the other would add to it, and so on. One note had about four additions to it. I will cherish these forever!

Along with the notes I came across this picture above. It was taken of me and a little friend about five years ago when I was working full time at the animal clinic. Back then we took in orphaned fawns. An animal control officer brought this one in when she took this picture. We still rehab wildlife but no longer take in deer. Between pets, humane societies, exotics, and wildlife, you never know what is going to come through that door. Do you see why I like to fill in occasionally now so my co-workers could get some time off?


  1. Awww!! Such a sweet fawn! And I love that you kept those notes from your kids.

  2. How wonderful that you have those notes from your children. Precious memories.

  3. The notes must always bring a smile to your face when you read them. The photo of you and the fawn is adorable. It must feel amazing to be part of helping animals recover. :-)

  4. Those notes sound like something my sister and I would do. I'm so glad you found them! :-)

  5. I love coming across old letters like that :) And what a great photo...that fawn is so cute!!
