We Think He Has a Future At Hallmark

This post was originally published on January 27, 2007.

My six-year-old son made this drawing for my parents:


If you can't read it, it says, "Dear Mimi and Pop, We love you guys so much and we will never hate you guys.  I love you alot."

Then, for emphasis, he taped a beat-up old eraser next to it.  Because, you know, nothing says "we will never hate you" like a beat-up old eraser.

Warms the heart, doesn't it?

    Oh! That reminds me!
    My 7YO gave me a note for Christmas, written as a poem.
    “My family is the best!”
    And he accidentally typed “best” with an “a” in it.
    Best, beast, whatever. I imagine we’re a little bit of both.

    It’s a wonderful age!
    The Howler, for Mother’s Day last year, gave me a coupon book that promises she will “play outside 10 times” if I give her the coupon.(Like I’m parting with that sentiment EVER.)

    Kind of like God. He says, I will never hate you … Then he erases every icky thing, with his own big eraser, and says to us: “Your sins are as far as the east is from the west.”
    Amazing, that big ol’ eraser.
    Beautiful post. Beautiful blog!
