Hello Isaac. I just thought I’d drop you a quick note since we’re now in our last few days as a threesome. Your little brother’s going to be arriving very soon and I wanted to say a few things.
Firstly, Mummy and I have had huge fun helping you through your first 3 years. We certainly felt the impact of your arrival, but our change from couple to family has been heavily peppered with belly laughs and ‘no, there’s just something in my eye’ moments. I still want to munch various parts of you. And sorry for being so tickly, but your full on giggle is more addictive than crack cocaine (although possibly less than Disney, which has a bigger marketing budget).
Secondly, we both hope you love your brother when he comes. Or as soon as possible afterward, ideally. You deserve a partner in crime. And he is so lucky to have a big brother who already knows what he likes (but how?) and seems so excited about his arrival.
Most of all I wanted to thank you. In your short existence you’ve opened my eyes to new possibilities, new priorities and the chance of a better life for all of us than we might otherwise have dared to try for. No, you can’t watch The Lion King again.
