The Letter

I got an early birthday/Christmas gift from Super Trey. A Camera! We can finally document all those important milestones in our children's lives and in the 'hood!

It's also helpful to prove that I'm not making any of this stuff up.

For instance...

This evening, Olivia (6) brought me a handmade envelope with a note and $1.26.

Here's the note.


If you can't read it, it says,

"Dear Mom, thanks for being my mom.
My normal mom.
Love: Olivia" (hearts over the i's)

Normal?!?

Do you think she's trying to use the power of suggestion?

And why $1.26?

What does it mean? WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!?

One time my youngest brother game my mom this little wooden dog that said on the side,

"I heard you had a baby, try having a litter."

And I'm glad your a normal mom, a normal friend...very normal.

lol!!! i immediately thought of the old country song (can't recall who sang it...the wilkinsons maybe?) it was called .26 cents ("cents" was actually that little c symbol but i can't find it on the keyboard?). anyway, the song said "here's a penny for your thoughts, a quarter for the call, and all of your momma's love"....so you got an extra dollar. maybe that's for 4 extra calls? or a snack while you talk on the phone or something. once again i laugh and laugh at your wonderful blog!!!
