Mummy… Daddy… I want to talk to you…


But since I cannot express myself yet and communicate like you do… I want to write you something.

Daddy… Mummy, I put daddy first so he won’t be jealous :-), I know that everyday you have a lot of things to do and you get tired a lot. But you should know that also I do a lot of things at my school which you may not know that they are extremely tiring!

Well, for example, when I go to school, do you know how tired I get because I miss you? Do you know how hard it is for me to be in a place without you? Something strange happens: instead of being more tired as time goes by, I feel exactly the opposite. And the most funny thing is that, at noon, I… how can I say it… I don’t want to leave school. I guess, because I am relaxed

Mummy… Daddy, I know you like playing with me with your toys, TV, cellphone, tablet and that’s why I love you, because you let me play with your toys. I get upset because I am not as good as you would like with these toys. I get tired when I drop water on your cellphone, I get upset when I don’t throw well the toys on TV, I find it hard to gently press this mouse, that’s why I throw it down. Also, at school, they don’t give us such toys so that I could practice and become as good as you… That’s the problem.

Well… how can I say it… I would like to play with you with my own toys. To play with my bricks, my puzzles, my fake little people. I cannot stretch myself… get tall and reach your height. You, on the other hand, you may sit down with me, on the carpet, on the floor and I’ll show you how good I am with these toys.

Daddy… Mummy, today at school, we started decorating with our teachers our classes for Christmas. I like so much Christmas because they are colourful. They are full of colourful lights, beautiful music and happy songs. But what I like most on these colourful days is that I see you more, we play nice games and… I receive so many presents!

Mummy… Daddy, I am growing up and while I’m doing that I know that I will miss your hugs, your caresses and the games with you so much. Especially the game of me pretending not to hear you and you pretending not to love me and scold me. This is something I enjoy a lot because, at the end, you can’t stand anymore not to love me and you remember that I love you too and we hug again. Because I love hugs, caresses and kisses from you, I want to enjoy them a lot before I get too tall and you can’t reach me.



Mummy… Daddy… my sweet Daddy… Mummy…

I want to write you that,

as a kid,

“I like living the moment”

“I am not embarrassed about my past”

“I am not worried about the future”

“I express what I feel and I am not afraid to love”


I am a child… and I love you!
