Bubba is Grateful and . . .Bitter

Today was thank you note day. Bubba starts back to school tomorrow and, while I might take my sweet time, I am a woman who loves to write a thank you note and I want my children to share the value and experience the joy of expressing heartfelt gratitude.

So I told my son he WOULD write thank you notes today.

He was all for it. He really does love his Star Wars pop-up book and watching The Sword in the Stone with him last week was an experience I could charge admission for. I was not at all surprised to walk into the kitchen this afternoon and see that he had taken the initiative and started his letter to Aunt Brooke. I am also not surprised that he stopped halfway through to admire his penmanship and inform me that he has, “very very nice handwriting.” (I’m going to tell his teacher to stop encouraging him!)

So, here is the letter. You will see his personality in the list portion of the note and you will sense a touch of bitterness in the random information about the Leappad.

The picture is a story for another post, but you can tell how much it bothers him by the warning added on the next page :
Bitter, party of one?

    Tell me how you really feel Bubba. Bitter party of one is right and I so enjoyed it too! I too enjoy sending thank you notes I believe it is a lost art not many send them anymore ):

    Isn’t he something! Too funny!
    By the way, this is the reason I want to write a blog (to remember funny little moments like this), but I know I’ll probably just continue living vicariously through yours. (Do you think my kids will notice one day if I have used your blog for their memory books?? I guess that won’t work…)
