Day 3: Your Parents

Dearest Darlingest Mumsy and Popsicle (yeah, I stole that from Wicked),
Where do I begin? Did you know that I love you guys? It's true, I do. You're the best parents I could ask for. You've given me a great example of how to raise my own children, and I'm a better mom to the Sharkbaby because of you.
Even when I went through rough patches in my life, you never gave up on me. You stood by me, you gave me some tough love, and you were always there when I needed you.
Mom, the older I get the more I realize just how alike we are. You know what it feels like to be a new wife and mother, and I appreciate your willingness to listen to me. You are such a fantastic nana to the Sharkbaby, and I know he loves you very, very much. I mean, come on, he sleeps better for you, he's happier for you, and you spoil him. How could he not love you?
Dad, you just sort of "get" me, and you always have. We have a lot more in common than how we look, that's for sure. You taught me what sort of man I needed to marry, and you are a great example to Curious George about how to be a good husband and father. Sharkbaby loves his Pops, too, but you always have been a bit of "baby whisperer".
Even though I'm grown up, I still love coming home. I know that it will always be someplace I'll be welcome, loved, and happy. I hope that I can provide that sort of environment for my own family someday.
Anyway, that's enough mushy stuff for one day. I love you guys, and I always will.
Love you,
