What Do You Get When You Cross a Salesman With a Writer?

One of the absolute coolest things about being a parent is having a front row seat to developing personalities. It’s so interesting to watch the different parts and pieces of yours and your partner’s personality merge and meld and influence this new little person you’re raising.

Sometimes it can be convicting – like when you see a smirk on your tween’s face that you realize you’ve seen in the mirror countless times.

Other times it’s endearing – like when you see your grandmother’s dimples flash from your toddler’s cheeks when he’s laughing at his own joke (which is also a family trait – we think we’re pretty funny over here).

And sometimes you have a moment when you realize – you really should have seen this coming.

Let me share what came home in a certain third grader’s school folder. It’s a great example of what happens when you combine a writer and a salesman, and then let them loose to raise impressionable children…I’m so proud.

Dear Mom,

To my most awsomest, amazing, and incredible mom. I would really, really, really like a fruit smoothie from Sonic. One reason I want it is it will help me not have a bad dream tonight. If I have a bad dream then I’ll have to crawl in bed with you. Another reason is if I do not have it I will die from little drinking. The 3rd reason I need it is so it will save my life by protecting my taste buds from not having enough sweetness.

Love

Your Best child who needs a life,

Sydney

p.s. I don’t think my sisters or brother are allowed to have a fruit smoothie. It is poisonous to them.

Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Pleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaase!!! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please!

I would do ANYTHING for you to do it!

If the whole adventurer, scientist, inventor gig doesn’t work out for this girl, I think she may have a future in marketing. It looks like I’ll be heading to Sonic tonight.

  1. 😂 That was hilarious – and adorable! My favorite part was probably her pointing out that her siblings are allergic. Lol.
    I have a box for collecting the cutest and funniest letters from my boys. One day in the future I plan to put together a scrapbook of sorts to pull out when I need a laugh.

    1. Oh my goodness, me too! I loaded the kids up after school to take her to Sonic. We had to convince her it was ok to let her siblings get something also :). I have one of those boxes, too! It’s fun to look through it periodically and laugh at the things they came up with.
