I saw this in The Stir and it reminded me of the story of when my uncle ran away.... he grabbed an empty suitcase and hid under a bush (in the rain) in front of my grandparents house. When he got hungry he went home.
My 7-year-old daughter frequently disagrees with my parenting
decisions and prefers to express her frustration through the written
word rather than verbally.
Here is part of my growing collection of "hate mail" from my darling daughter
to her horrible parents. Notice her excellent handwriting skills! (She still
spells many words phonetically, so translations are included.)
