Letters to Someone

It's Thursday, and ya know what that means . . . Letters to Someone, compliments of ShortMama and her version of genius. Gawd, I think she's funny.  Go see her now. And do your own letters.  It feels SO good.  You can thank me later for the free therapy.

Dear Sir at Starbucks ~

The leather chairs and occasional tables do make a coffee shop cozy.  I'm with ya.  But regardless of how much it feels like home, it is not.  There's just no reason EVER to take your shoes off while you're enjoying your cappucino.  EVER.  I shouldn't have been surprised since you're over 25 and wearing an Ed Hardy hat with a shirt unbuttoned to your navel, but come on.  No shoes?  Truly not acceptable.  Don't let it happen again.  I'm not kidding.

Quite Sincerely,

Miss Triple Venti Skinny Latte

 Dear Vacation ~

I know you were just here last week, but I miss you so much already.  Could you return again soon?  I'd like to spend some meaningful time together watching palm trees sway and drinking fruity drinks.  Whaddya say?  You.  Me.  Sunny & Balmy.  I'll welcome you with open arms.  Come soon.  I've heard stress makes you ugly and I'm not interested.

Longing for your Touch,

The Wanna-be Beach Bunny in January

Dear Teachers of Young Children ~

You are to be admired and respected for your commitment.  I firmly believe that you will never make enough money to compensate you for the positive impact you have on families all over the world.  I mean that with all my heart.  I do, however, have one tiny beef with the two of you that are impacting my family right now.  Tiny.  Please consider the amount of work it takes to get a family back on track after kids haven't been in school for 17 days and don't change the freakin' rules RIGHT NOW.  Don't start leaving the morning line up ten minutes earlier than you have been all.damn.year. without warning.  That makes us late.  Not cool.  And when you tell a 7 year old who lives for details that he must have subtraction flash cards through the number 18 this week ~ it is way not cool to figure out later that he really only needs them through 12 because no one even sells them through 18.  You just can't even imagine how much trouble that sort of thing causes for a kid like him.  Tiny.  Advanced notice on process changes.  Accurate information for required supplies.  Please and Thank You.

Hugs, Kisses & Thanks,

The Mama who knows how hard you work and just needs a little more time to adjust




Dear Baby B ~

You are such a precious creature.  Truly precious.  I miss you while our lives are so busy and wish we could spend more time together.  I love your sweet little smile and your soft brown hair.  When I think about all the milestones you have coming up I smile no matter where I am.  Uncle E and I are so honored to be your Godparents and love you endlessly.  We are very excited to share all of your happy moments this year and for many years to come.  You are a special treasure in a sometimes scary world.

With So Much Love,

Your Adoring Auntie

Great letters! And I agree teachers are so underpaid, but time for adjustments is a must!

Ok, so the baby stole the show in letter writing today! How adorable! I'd have to agree with you that the freaky shoeless guy would have to knock that crap off pronto! And I don't think schools will ever stop changing routines and not reporting it. Our school does it with the buses. Get a sub drives and they take the route backwards, so 10-15 minutes later than normal the kids finally come trailing home.

I so hear you on the letter to the guy at Starbucks. Same goes for the coffee area at Borders, the airport, and the movie theater. Unless you're getting a pedicure, keep your shoes on!

Stopping by from SITS!

What a beautiful little baby!
And also, the homework and stuff they throw on kids at such young ages really flips me out!

Ewwwwww. Who takes their shoes if in public like that? It grosses me out when people do it on planes and they don't have socks on!
