Observations From the Tub: Kid Talk!

Today’s Observations From the Tub

Kid Talk!

We all know that kids really do pop off with some cute and funny stuff, like this story my youngest daughter wrote for me one Mother’s Day many moons ago. Here’s the first page of it. It is one of my prized possessions. On a subsequent page she writes that my favorite clothes are my “jameas.” She was right about that!



Made you smile, right? So of course, when I came across a whole bunch of letters kids wrote to their parents, I had to share.  Plan on lots of grins. Here’s the link:  Enjoy!

See you Monday for Pawsitive Pondering!

      Indeed they do. I bet you have a ton of stories to tell from your years teaching. 🙂

    Lisa–So, you enjoy using the vacuum cleaner? 😉

    I can see why you keep this. Someday you’ll have grandkids, and then you can share the stuff made and said by their dad or their mom.

    Thanks for the smile…

      lol Uh, no, I do not enjoy using the vacuum cleaner. Not even a little. But I was always so picky about how it was done (silly me), and I didn’t want to let my little ones do it and then go behind them—I didn’t think that was right. So I just did it myself rather than accept the help and be less than pleased with the outcome. If I could have a do-over…

    I too love jammies! And aprons! My kids thought aprons were part of my wardrobe! Have a good weekend ahead!

    Lisa, I finished reading your book and really enjoyed it. You’re a talented writer.

    So, Lisa, I must say–you haven’t changed a bit. 🙂

      Haha…except now the vacuuming rarely gets done at all. I was more on top of the whole housecleaning thing when I had little kids at home. These days? Not so much.

    LOL I hope you still like to do the vacuum cleaner by yourself.

      Alas, Rob, I squirm out of the chore nowadays whenever I can. 🙂

    Those were cute stories in the link you shared. 🙂 I’d rather vacuum than mop. 🙂

      I’d rather hire a maid service to do both. lol That’s something I’ve never done—hired a maid service—but, boy, if I could afford it…!

    I have to admit, I’m curious about what your job was. Manager of a wreck? I could say that of my own life. What a precious keepsake!

      lol It felt like being manager of a wreck sometimes, but no. Haha—she was trying to spell “work.” I ran the customer service department for a document management company (printing & mailing of statements/invoices & remittance services). I managed a staff of as few as 8 and as many as 12—great people—but the deadlines were constant and the stress was high. I wouldn’t mind working customer service again, because I like helping people, but I don’t want to manage anyone again. It’s tough to walk the line between manager and friend, and at this point in my life, I just want to be everybody’s friend. 🙂

    So very sweet! These little gifts from our children are our most precious keepsakes. And I too love “jameas” — my best writing uniform of all 😉

      lol Kids are so smart, aren’t they? I remember when Christy brought it home (that was kindergarten, and she’s 21 now!) thinking how well she knew me. 🙂
