Letters to Cullen

I Eat Tuna out of a Can

I Eat Tuna out of a Can

Dear Cullen, I am feeling a little guilty today. I had a tuna salad sandwich for lunch, and I knew you were there sitting on my shoulder wondering what the heck I was doing. "Haven't I taught you anything?" I could hear you say in my mind, as I used a can opener and added a can of tuna to a bowl where I chopped celery and onions and added Mayo. I remember how you absolutely refused to use tuna out of a can for sandwiches. The only tuna salad you ate was the one you made using fresh tuna that you cooked and chopped and...

Scary Laughter

Scary Laughter

Dear Cullen, I came across a card you wrote me last year, and you said how you loved relaxing with me in our house "except when I scare you, but that's fun too." I remember how you loved to jump out of hiding places and make me launch 10 feet in the air, or when you'd randomly scream when we were watching TV and make me jolt off of the couch. I loved seeing you laugh when you did that; your whole body would shake and your eyes would squint shut from laughing so hard. Although I was always jumpy because of your...

It's All in a Name

It's All in a Name

Dear Cullen, Last week I was creating greeting cards for a craft fair, hand-signing each one below the artwork with my silver and gold pens. My eyes lit up for a moment as I remembered how you held a "Walsh practice" after we were engaged to teach me how to sign my new last name after we were married. I thought it was so cute how you wanted us to sign our names the same way, with a little loop at the end of the "W" and an extension of the "h" at the end like you had been doing for years....

Horace Loves Stella

Horace Loves Stella

Dear Cullen, I finally decorated for fall. It took awhile and I didn't think I'd do it, but eventually I became restless and thought that I should put in a little effort for the season. I took out all of the decorations, even all of my "scarecrow people" that you always made fun of and thought were creepy. I remember how you even named my first one Horace, after your little imaginary friend you had when you were a kid. I think you secretly liked him; it was evident when you started messing around with him and putting him in different...

Pumpkin Carving

Pumpkin Carving

Dear Cullen, This year we will miss our annual pumpkin-carving contest. I definitely would have won this year, I'm sure of it. I carved pumplins with Brian and Kelly this year, and it reminded me of our first contest when we were in the Norwalk house. I think I brought out the competitiveness in you (just a little bit), because it was your idea. We carved our first pumpkins at the same table, hiding our best work from each other until the "big reveal." Honestly they were both questionable as far as the work goes, but you won for obvious reasons. Here...
