Letters Of Intent


Is Friday not great? The weekend is so close you can taste it and of course, Letters of Intent. If you are in need of a pick me up, be sure to hop on over to Julie's blog to read more great letters! Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!


Dear Father Time,

I feel as though you need a vacation. You are just working so hard these days and I would hate for you to overwork yourself. Especially with the holidays coming you should really watch your work load. How does a 50 year cruise sound? Too much? What about a 15 day cruise? Wouldn't it be nice to pamper yourself on a luxurious Mediterranean cruise? I think you would love it. It would be so relaxing. I think it would be the perfect thing to help you get your mind off of work. I bet you will want to just take two, back to back. Let me just say, I am totally okay with that. So what do you say? Wait, wait, wait don't answer right away because it's a big decision. You know what, I will just have the travel agent call you.

Sincerely,

Can't Catch Up

Dear Lula Mae,

You are so smart and you blow my mind on a daily basis. Why then dear will you not pee in the potty? You are such a big girl and you must start using the potty. I know you understand the concept because of our many conversations that go something like this:

(sound of peeing in the potty)

Lula Mae: "Oh, great job Mommy! You're a big girl using the potty! Yay! You get a sticker! Great job!"

Me: "Awww thanks sweetie. Do you want to use the potty like Mommy?"

(dead silence)

You are a great encourager and I love you for that, but it does not change the fact that you are still peeing and pooping in a diaper. Remember that one time when you peed right beside the potty? That was close. Next time try sitting on the potty. Honey, we gotta get this down, okay? I am starting to worry that you will wear diapers forever. I don't want to have to buy you Depends dear child.

Love,

Mommy Who Knows You Can Potty Like A Big Girl And That You Are Just Being Stubborn Which Is So Like You....

I am laughing - and still laughing at your post and commenters!

You know that whole "girls are easier to potty train than boys" thing? I have to say that boys tend to think it's pretty cool to pee anywhere, so mine started potty training himself at 20 months. You just never know what's going to "click" for them!

Congrats on your followers! Whoo hoo!

Oh yes Father Time you need a nice long cruise! Please!
Good luck with the potty training! It is my enemy mommy job!

Let me know if that letter to Father Time works. Can it be a universal fix and not just a local one?

Good luck w/potty training. It can be such a stressful time until they get it.

I look forward to your next TST for sure!

Thanks for linking up!
