Up until now I've tried to bribe, persuade and guilt you into arriving. Today, I'm taking a new approach: inviting you.
Your father and I invite you to join us on the outside where we promise to love, cuddle, hug and kiss you to a ridiculous degree. We invite you to play with Lexi, run up and down the stairs, eat macaroni and cheese and the million other things little boys do so well. Please accept our invitation to join us on the outside at your earliest convenience.
