Raven,

I just wanted to thank you for letting me sleep over when I forgot my keys last night.  Being new to the neighborhood is kind of lonely, but you came over the first day that we moved in and were so nice to us. You knew my mom and dad were out for the night, cause you had given them the movie tickets to relax after moving all week.  That was so nice of you.  So when I couldn’t find my keys and it was going to be past my curfew, I knew I could knock on your door.

I am so sorry that I woke you and that you had to come down to answer the door in your nightgown.  It was so pretty.  Just like my mommy wears.  You even smelled like her too.  I could smell you, when I was walking behind you into the den.  I didn’t want you to think I was weird when I sat so close to you on the couch.  You just smelled just like her, and my mommy smells so good.  You smelled like she smells when I crawl into her and daddy’s bed in the middle of the night.  That is my favorite.

Thank you for letting me wear a pair of your son’s old pajama’s too.  I love the kind with the feet in them.  I kind of want to keep them.  Can I keep them? I should at least let my mommy wash them before I give them back.  They have a weird wet spot right over my underwear.  I don’t know how that happened.  I am kind of embarrassed.

It is weird.  You took me into the den, and you cuddled up next to me for a while.  And I remember you going into the kitchen to get me some milk and cookies.  They were so good.  I don’t even remember falling asleep on your lap, but that is where I woke up.  I remember looking up at you.  You were still awake, but you had the prettiest smile on your face, and you had carried me all the way to your son’s old room.  I slept so good, but I am afraid I might have wet myself while I was sleeping, and I wanted to tell you I was sorry for that.  I will give them to my mommy to wash.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for keeping me safe and warm.  I think I love you.  Can I call you Mommy Raven?

Do you want to call me Mommy?
