The Substitute

One-handed typing being what it is, I've decided to share with you Youngest's latest email to me. [Yes, he's 6, and he has his own email account, which he actually uses from time to time, sending silly notes to his older sister or his dad or me.]

My apologies to all Barney lovers out there. And, look at it this way, at least you're not hearing him sing it. Dozens of times a day.

I hate you

You hate me

Barney stole my MTV

Shot him with a 64

Now there's no more Dinosaur

Love

Youngest

ps you're a nut head

Wow, I'm impressed on multiple levels. (1) Nice use of verb contraction from a 6 year old! Some grownups don't even get it right. (2) He can type? (3) And he emails you cute notes! Aaaawww....

Yes, it is Youngest's own writing. He has learned "you're" and gets its usage. He's a strange one, that boy. Smart, but strange. And, yeah, he types. Excruciatingly slowly, like his one-armed mother.

That is hilarious! Any kid who hates Barney too is fine by me. I'd even listen to him sing it a few (hundred) times.

Any time they practice their writing skills, I figure, is a good thing. And how fun those emails will be to look at in 25 years. HA!!

That is awesome. Sounds like messages my teens send each other. One is in college, the other high school.

I can so see a six year old boy thinking that was the funniest thing he ever heard.

Jasmine had this car key joke she told over and over and over.... till it was funny to me that she still thought it was funny.

Of course, she still has trouble with contractions at eleven, but we're almost there.
