FIVE Things I’d like Jacob to Know

Jacob and Mommy

ONE: Bullying is unacceptable. I never want you to take someone else’s power away by using fear to make them do what you want them to do, or to simply make them feel bad. But if someone is pushing you around and there isn’t an adult close by to help, kick them in the groin and run to find an adult!

TWO: I don’t care what you do for a living. I care about how you’re living. I hope that you’re happy with your choices in life, and are a good person.

THREE: If you’re EVER feeling down, sad, or depressed, please tell dad or me. I hope that you’re never embarrassed to talk to us about your feelings. I’m going to try my best to always let you know that your feelings MATTER. Even if you think they seem silly, they’re still your feelings and they deserve respect!

FOUR: Choose your friends wisely. If they make you question whether you’re about to make a bad choice on more than one occasion, choose friends that don’t make life that complicated. Choose friends that you can be yourself with.

FIVE: I love you. There are going to be times when you can’t stand the sight of me and I’m okay with that. As long as you know that I’ll do anything to keep you safe and make you happy, that’s all that matters. Your parents love you very much. We may embarrass you, but we’ll always have your back.

    Your little guy is cute. I have one named Jacob who is 5. Sometimes I feel like he is the bully to me. Yes, these cuties grow up to be demanding. But a hug and a kiss makes me for it. I’m a sucker for his snuggles.
