The Stories I would have read to you.

Dear Breadon,

When your big brother was a baby I used to read this book to him. It was my favorite book and we loved to snuggle up and read it over and over.

Well when he got bigger, I went through a stage of getting rid of stuff. A friend was having a baby and I thought I would pass the book on to her.

I regretted that for so long. I have searched and searched for the book for so many years. Both before and after you were born, I wanted to read the book to you.

Today I found it. And it is beautiful and I want to read it to you. I would have snuggled you close to me and read it over and over.

Wonderful Youby Kate Gleeson

One Day Big Bear said to Small Bear,
There’s something you should know:
I made a wish and you came true, and now I love you so.
You’re the colors of my rainbow,
The honey in my tea.
You’re butterflies and lullabies,
You’re everything to me!
You’re bright blue skies on sunny days,
When we take a walk at noon.
You’re shooting stars on summer nights,
You’re a ring around the moon.
Let’s hug the trees and ride the breeze,
Let’s gather stars and share them.
We’ll talk to birds and learn their words,
We’ll string some shells and wear them.
Let’s name the clouds and dream out loud,
Let’s ask a fox to tea.
We’ll thank the sun, and just for fun,
We’ll wave to bumblebees.
You are my child, my precious one – special in every way.
I’m filled with wonder of wonderful you,
And I love you more each day!

Sweet baby boy, I love you more each day.


  1. I am glad you found it, that is beautiful and so true.
