The 7yo broke up for the summer last week and, as expected, he brought home a huge bag full of paper to add to the mountain already in the house.
He is particularly proud of his writing folder and he sat me down and read me every story and report. The folder also contained the originals of his persuasive letters (Can I have a hamster and I’m not cute)…
But, it turns out that there was a third letter, which I had been completely unaware of – and I have to assume that the school didn’t mail this one…!
So, at the risk of overload on persuasive letters, I simply couldn’t resist sharing this one too:
The thought of my son asking for healthy food in preference to ‘treats’ almost made me fall off my chair laughing.
And, I’m quite sure that Mr Obama has rather more important things to worry about!
[Update 22 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. This is the last persuasive letter that my son wrote in 1st Grade, he certainly went out with a bang!]
