Dear <name>, I was putting a coat in storage when I found some money in the pocket! Don't you love it when that happens? Love, Mom
Dear <name>, I went on a trip with some friends of mine. Your dad held down the fort. And by "held down the fort," I mean he sat around in his sweatpants and ate pizza. I got this for you.  Mom
Dear <name>, Say, <name>, have you been eating right? As your mom, it's my job to worry. And to send you stuff. Eat well! Mom

Dear <name>, There's a song I often find myself humming during the day, but for the life of me, I can't remember the name. I hope not! Mom
Dear <name>, Do you think it's age? I was thumbing through an old family photo album the other day, and it made me really want to write you a letter. You were so cute!  Mom
Dear <name>, I made your favorite dish for dinner tonight! Prune casserole! Hee hee! I'm just kidding! I say blech to prunes! Mom

Dear <name>, Your dad decided he wanted to cook a meal for us the other day. It was delicious! I wish he'd clean, too. Mom
