So Z has requested that we put up a mailbox outside our bedroom door so that she can deliver mail-notes to us. Apparently speaking directly to us has become passé and mail is the way to go now.
You won't hear any opposition from me as it's always a good thing when she wants to write more, building her handwriting and spelling skills and keeping her busy with something that doesn't involve the television.
So I promptly put up this little mail box outside our bedroom door.
It quickly filled up with little notes to Mom and Dad, with sweet messages of how much she loves us and sweet goodnights with lots of X's & O's and adorned with cute pictures of hearts and smiley faces.
Last night after she went to bed, I found this little note in the mailbox addressed to Mommy:
Today we will hanging a little mailbox outside her bedroom that i will lovingly fill with little notes to her. My first note will read:
The pancakes are hiding in your room somewhere but you will need to clean up all the mess to find them.
