Yesterday a letter arrived in the post.
Addressed to my husband and I, it was from the 6yo…
We knew that his class had been working on persuasive letters. We weren’t expecting one to arrive in the mail!
I opened it and it made me laugh out loud. Suffice to say, he won’t be getting what he asked for, but he will be getting lots of points for his persuasive reasoning!
I’m all for quiet time, bless him, but I’m still not getting him a hamster (or a hampster)!
[Update 8 June 2015: I am revisiting this old post for the From the Mouths of Babes linky, from the lovely Louise of Little Hearts Big Love. It still makes me chuckle; and now (just shy of his ninth birthday) his persuasive reasoning has only improved! It turned out to be the first in a series of letters… I’ll be back next week to share the second one!]
