We are in the "writing notes" phase of childhood. From time to time I will find a note one of them has left for me on my bed. Sometimes I leave notes for the girls in their lunchboxes. This is a note I wrote Schatz this morning...and her response.
Schatz is a sassy six year old. She is a handful. "Schatz" (Shot-zee) is a German endearment like honey or sweetie.
Early on I decided that I had two options with this child. I could get frustrated with her when she is sassy or bossy; or I could recognize the humor in the situation, grab a pen, and write it down. I chose the latter. Yes, this is real. No, this is not an exaggeration.
In the spirit of fair parenting, I've started peppering this blog with the funny things that my older daughter says and does. You can't make this stuff up!
