My Dearest Cuties,
How are you doing today? Hope you are doing great and having a good time? We are fine except that we miss you so much. We are eagerly looking forward to the Christmas holiday. The days seem so slow while the nights drag too long. In just three weeks we are going to be together. These three weeks seem like a whole year to me. How are your friends? Do you find time to talk a little and have some fun or do you just read read read and read?
Every evening I imagine you two reading in the School library. I see you walk back to your different rooms and Shaloooo, I see you waving goodnight to your little sister Boboo and I just wish that you two share the same room or hostel. If it were possible, I would have ensured that you both sleep side by side.
It is shocking howstrong I have turned. I never thought that I'd be able to cope with you two leaving for boarding Schools. I had always wanted a situation where you'd school from home and leave us only when you are old enough to go to college. Your Daddy felt otherwise, he felt that schooling from home won't give you enough study time. He felt that there are too many distractions at home ( Online dress up games, your favorite Disney Chanel, Stardoll, I dress up and a host of others) He said the best place for kids in this Internet age is a boarding school where they can't lock themselves up and play games. I see now that he was very right because right from the day you left for School, your baby sisters have not watched those Channels that have young girls and boys making up and breaking up at random. They have been banned from Online games except during holiday. They really look forward to the Christmas holiday where they can learn more fun holiday games and have fun with you two. (Hoping your Christmas list is moderate)

Do you know that I cried a couple times after you left? I could not bear not seeing you for this long. It's been two months and it seem like two years. I miss you girls, I miss your laughter, I miss your sneaking into the kitchen after bedtime, I miss hearing your whispers after bed time and then opening your door to find you looking like you are in deep sleep, I miss you saying there is no food in the house whenever your snacks are finished. I miss your struggling to take the front seat from me, struggling to see who sits next to your father.
Shaloo, I miss you talking to your baby sister Kabstick to stop sneaking into mum and Dad's room at night; She does that a lot these days. She promises never to do it again, but I still wake up to find her snuggled in between us. I do not know how you do it, but you have a way of making her do what you want.
I can't wait for you to come and talk some sense into her beautiful little head. I need all my space when I sleep. Do you miss us? Do you and Bobo find time to talk about home?
when we came for your Visiting day, we noticed that Bobostic has lost some weight. Well, we felt it is as a result of her leaving her family for the first time in her 9 years. That day I felt like sneaking her into my handbag and taking her back home with me, but when I saw her scores and her general performance, I quickly changed my mind because despite her age, she is coping well. For you Shaloo mama, you are already used to the system, so, you still looked your same beautiful size. You two get ready for me cos when you return home for holiday, I will ensure that you eat six square meals daily for all the period of your holiday, I will surely get you overstuffed with food by God's special grace.
We say a prayer for you everyday, and trust that the almighty is with you always. Please baby girl, stop skipping beans. Try to eat every meal served, life is all about adjustments and you know that what ever you are given is for your good health. You know that beans is very vital for your growth . When you come back here, beans will be staring at your faces so, eat it OK?
We are so proud of your hardwork, Bobostic, we are happy that Shalom visits you often and gives some "big sister guidance." We cannot wait for December when we'll all be re-united again. Remember to always pray. Ehen, lest I forget, Shaloo please I beg you to read more of your School books than novels. And you Bobooo, remember what I told you, "the fewer your friends, the lesser the distraction."
Read, play and do your best. We look forward to when we'll hug and roll on the ground with you girls, See you then.
