Dear Someone

Dear Twelve People Who Are Coming To Dinner Tonight,

Feel free to grab a glass of wine as you step in our house, quickly down it and get a second. I'm praying hoping after two glasses you might ignore our lived-in look and there's a good chance the food will taste better as well.

Also, please don't comment worry about the paint that's peeling on our living room ceiling. We're aware of it and we'll fix it eventually.


Your not-so-engrossed hostess who will probably have a glass or two of wine before your arrival

Dear Bug,

Yay for you, little man! Thanks for staying in your room ALL NIGHT. And...thanks for telling me this morning that when you woke up and it was still dark--you told Winnie-the-Pooh about your day rather than calling for me.

Big kisses,

Your happy, rested mom

Dear Bruce,

It's less than three weeks until our date...exciting, isn't it?!


More letters at Amanda at Family of Shorts.


  1. Sounds like my kind of dinner party!

  2. Love it! I'm all over that dinner party, as long as you don't worry about the fur-balls on my floor from our pets!

  3. Go ahead and have a couple of glasses, it wont hurt, really.

    Im so glad that Winnie took over for you so you could get some rest. He's quite a bear, that one.

  4. That does sound like a fun dinner party. They won't notice the ceiling paint anyway :)

  5. i love a party with a lot of wine.

    and that letter to bruce is hilarious.

  6. Have fun

    don't worry about the rest of it!

  7. I'm so glad Bug slept all night!

    I hope the dinner goes well tonight. Keep those drinks flowing!

  8. Maybe they should have three drinks...then they won't give a hoot about anything! And yay for Bug!

  9. Bring on the wine!

  10. Mom has a sign that says, "My house is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy." I think that fits! :)

  11. I'm gonna have to remember that first letter for next time I have company! Loved it!

  12. Now I am dying to know how it went.

  13. I totally obsess when people are coming to our house but I never notice clutter/paint at someone else's. I need to get my priorities in check. Hope it was fun!

  14. Aw! I love that he told Winnie the Pooh about his day! Yay for you and Bug! He needs a squeeze from me. Go ahead, tell him it's from you if you want. ; )

  15. I can't wait to see a post about how drunk, um, I mean happy all your guests were. Sounds like my kind of dinner!!

  16. A happy rested mom is the best. I want to be that mom NOW.
