A Note for You...and You and You
Hazel's kindergarten class is learning to write letters. Everyone in the class writes one letter to a person who's name s/he randomly picks, so everyone can have a letter, and if they have free time, they can write to other people. Then someone gets to be a mailcarrier and delivers the letters to the childrens' boxes. Oh, if we could all be in kindergarten. There is no economic crisis in kindergarten! Just cookie clubs and letter people.
Hazel was so pleased to get some letters.
"Mom! I got so many letters! I saved them so we could read them at home!"
She got them out of her pink lightning-bolt backpack (and we thought we'd never go back to the 80's) and we opened them together one by one. The notes were in a special format that went like this:
Hazel's first note told her she was a "bac" friend. Her second note, a "cied" friend. While Hazel and I read them, I did my best to keep a straight face.
"What does that say Mom?"
"Wow, Haze, I don't know. B-a-c-k, no, B-a-s-s, no, hmm. I think it means best friend, Haze."
"Oh. What does that one say?"
"S-i-gh-ed, no, k-y-ed, oh. Probably kind, Hazey. You are a kind friend."
"Oh." She chuckles. "b-a-c?"
We both laugh.
So, because it brought so much joy to us, I'm sending some notes to some of my frequent commenters. And believe me, I mean it from the bottom of my heart.
