These are letters to Jack, my son, and my daughter, Audrey. You have given me the gift of motherhood. This is just a little gift back. I want to share my experiences with you of your childhood from my perspective of watching you grow - of being your Mom.

The second day of vacation, we kind of relaxed and enjoyed the resort itself. The resort that we are staying at has at least three different pools, multiple playgrounds, an activity room that is a lot like the room at a preschool center and the grounds are covered with lots of little lizards.
There is an unlimited number of activities to do with a little one where we stayed.
Your dad had been talked into sitting through a timeshare pitch for a free breakfast, so we went there and it ended up being a great morning for you. While we got pitched to, we sat in the playroom where you could grab any toy or activity that grabbed your fancy and play with it to your hearts content, so we sat back half-listening to the lady and “manager” that had been brought in to sell us and nodded and ummm-hmmm’ed while watching you enjoy the heck out of yourself. After we finished there, we went out to the outdoor pool which has a very shallow end where you can go in and out on your own and sprouts that you loved to put your Woody and Buzz Lightyear dolls into to see them get sprayed and fly into the pool. Woody would float on the top of the water, but bubbles came out of Buzz’s helmet and he would sink to the bottom. This was a fascinating game to you and you were content to play it for most of the rest of the day.
After feeding the ducks and chasing lizards and playing on the outdoor playgrounds, we wound up back in our room bright and early where we watched television and kicked back falling asleep early and after a very eventful day.
