Dear Lil’ Caramel,
Now here’s the deal, little one: I’m really excited to meet you. That’s the truth and the heart of this letter, and although I’d love for that big day to be tomorrow (for reasons that I’ll get to in just one second), I’ll continue to keep you warm and snuggly if you want to stay inside. I’m really not that uncomfortable – yet – and even if I am getting a little bored, I’m trying my hardest to practice being in the present before your presence changes everything (in a really, really good way).
So, short, sweet and to the point, here’s why I want you to enter the big, wide world tomorrow: first, you’ll be living up to your name in a most fashionable sort of way. Although we’re keeping said name secret to much of the world, can I just say that it’d be quite fun if you came out with a boom tomorrow? And the second reason goes along with it: BOOM! It’s going to be the 4th of July in about 3 hours and 41 minutes. Wouldn’t it be be awesome to celebrate YOU every time Independence Day rolls around? It’d be like the entire country’s celebrating you, every single year (and I’m sure that we could lead you to believe just that until you’re at least 5 or 6 years old. Shhh). I just hope your favorite color combination is red, white and blue.
So, little one, are you ready? We sure are! Bring it!
