I've seen where your child writes you a tender little note as an apology for their behavior or just to tell you what a good mom you are. Or maybe a picture of something you've done for them that they appreciated.
Yes. I've seen them.
But what do I get? This:
Allow me to write this out for you:
Sens you didn't give me seareel I'm not comeing. I am not going to touch the carpet for the rest of the night unless you give me mini mini weats withe the milke.
That's from TBone, as if I needed to tell you that.
Some points of interest here:
- He had a bad attitude about the mahi mahi I had made for dinner. He claimed he "hated fish it's the worst thing on earth blahblahblah." So I gave him a half of a piece which he proceeded to practically inhale but his pride wouldn't allow him to ask for more. Cuz that would then expose him for the fish lover that he is, see? So he ate that, his green beans and then was done.
- As he was bemoaning the menu for the evening he also mentioned that he was FULL due to his having eaten a piece of cold pizza out of the fridge around 3:30p and that he didn't need dinner to begin with.
- Then 7:30ish rolls around and I see him getting in the cupboard to make himself a bowl of cereal. Um no. You said you were "full" complained about what I made for dinner so forget it, I said.
- He then goes up stairs in a huff and comes back down 20 minutes later and hands me this ransom note.
- Why would I care if he touched the carpet for the rest of the night? This would keep him out of the family room where I was trying to catch up on my shows anyway.
- Am I crazy or should his spelling be better? He's closing in on the end of 2nd grade here people. Teachers or anyone with experience let me know if I should make a call to Sylvan.
- Is it bad that I found this hilarious and then let him make himself some cereal? Crap.
