Today was the Winter Party at Patience's school. Here are the girls making reindeer sandwiches:
The teacher and I had a little tete-a-tete as the kids went through the fun stations. I mentioned the ink incident. She asked if Patience had shared what Those Boys Did with scissors. I said yes. She was very cute about it.
Then she asked if I had seen Patience's letter to Santa that she wrote in class.
She said it was the funniest letter because...well, see for yourself:
A cat and 3 kittens. (She means REAL ones.)
And a dog and puppies. (Again, real ones.)
And for my sister to calm down.
Please Santa Claus, make my sister calm down.
She and I laughed and laughed. I got home, read the letter, and laughed and laughed again. Then I had Patience read it to me, and kept my giggles to myself, no mean feat, especially when she added, "Because That Child is way too busy for her own good."
