After a Fight with Parley

I came home one evening to a couple of notes Hazel had written Parley after they had been arguing. Here is the first one:


Translation: (notice the P's decorating the corners)
Dear: Parley,
I'm sorry that I hurt your tooth. I write this on paper, because we'd keep doing talking and you would distract me. Give this to daddy so he can read it to you. Parley please don't get mad at me.
Love, Haze

I can imagine the scene so vividly: Hazel, so devastated by the fight, goes upstairs to make amends by writing this apology, while Parley, downstairs, has totally forgotten there was ever a fight and is now happily watching a movie.
Jed affirms my imaginary scene is correct; and that he did, in fact, read the note to a confused Parley.

2nd note tomorrow.

You are doing a wonderful job with your children. My ten year old daughter and four year old son are frenemies right now. I am constantly reminding them that once Dad and I are long gone that they will always have each other. Kelly replies by telling me Jack still won't be allowed in her room when they're old.

Sigh

Oh and please relay to Jed how much I enjoyed his musings in your absence. Good good stuff!

She is writing these notes to your little boy who is how old? Not even two, right? I love that. She is so articulate!
