3 Mothers

My dear future daughter-in-law,

James is a sweet, sensitive, mellow, caring young man. I promise you that he will love you with all of his heart, and strive every day to make you happy. (He is just like his father in all of those ways).

However, please don't get too upset if he answers you "yes, ma'am," or doesn't understand why you won't share your toys, or gets confused when there is only one of you trying to take care of him.

Because, you see, he grew up with three mothers. This one:

This one:

And this one:

He is used to being dressed up and made up with my make-up. He is used to having 3 pairs of hands all around him when it's time to change his diaper. He is used to having 3 women want to feed him, take care of him, and boss him around.

Be patient with him, and he will love you more fiercely than you ever dreamed. He's used to being sensitive to women!

(James is a walking maniac at 13 months.)
