Notes from a 9 year old



My daughter left me a note tonight on the table. It was written on her dry erase board. She wrote it right after school before she went to dance class. It said, "Mommy. Go to the store tomorrow/today. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Old Mother Hubbard went to her cupboard... well you know the rest and so does my daughter!

I guess I will making a trip to the store tomorrow, since indeed the cupboards are bare.

Hahaha! That's priceless, as I'm sure the poor kids are starving. My kids will tell me there's nothing to eat the same afternoon I get home from the grocery store. But then when I tell them: "Ok, I'm going grocery shopping today...WHAT DO YOU WANT?" They're all like, "uh...I don't know."

So, I guess you'll be making a trip to the store tomorrow? :)

How funny! My kids are always begging me to go to the store - even when the cupboards aren't bare (in my opinion), just because they want the stuff in there - that they want. Aren't they funny?

Mine beg to go to the store the minute they get a dollar to burn. I'm working on the concept of saving money, but in one ear and out the other.

My note to my kids:

Kids please don't give your mom any CRAP today, she is feeling a little withcy. Thanks.

I love that note. My sons rejoice, REJOICE, when they come home from school, go into the pantry to grab a snack, and discover that it is full. They've even been known to run over to me, dance me in a circle, and plant a sloppy kiss on my cheek. Food . . . the way to a growing boy's heart!

Hahahaha! Once we were so low on food (I HATE going to the supermarket, as you may or may not know) I tried to convince my kids that canned beans was the dinner vegetable. That doesn't sound so bad, except they were chick peas... and chick peas in a bowl just looks very, very sad.

At least she said "please"....
