Today was a rough day, for both of us. I was feeling a bit under the weather, and you were an unhappy boy. Teething isn't fun. I wanted to make it all better, but nothing I did seemed to work. It just hurt too much.
But at the end of the afternoon, when I almost started crying along with you, you gave me hope. I tickled your tummy - just an attempt to distract you - and you burst into joyful laughter. You laughed and laughed, even after I stopped tickling you. You were my happy boy again. I even called your crazy Grandma so she could hear you laughing. You took the phone out of my hands and talked to her with a big smile on your face.
You got fussy again later, but that's okay. I know it hurts right now. But you reminded me that teething doesn't last forever. I hope your teeth come soon. We both could use a break!
Thank you for the laughter. Moments like that will be with me forever.
I love you always,

This week's Monday Mission is to write a thank you letter. I was going to write something funny...but the day presented me with a perfect opportunity to thank my little boy. Check out the rest of the Monday Missions over at Painted Maypole!
