Letters of Intent–UnFair

 

Dear Autumn,

On the very first day?

Knocking me flat with throwing up?

 

UNFAIR.

 

Love,

Too Busy to Be Sick

Dear Kindergarten Teacher,

 

They don’t pay you enough…

Nineteen kids.

Wandering, distracted, new to the whole obeying the teacher thing.

At the fair.

 

Props.

Dear Itty Bit,

When the teacher said to make a funny face… without fail, every single kid did this:

 

Except you…

And without fail, every single parent cracked up.

 

Love,

The One Who Laughed the Loudest

Dear Fair,

 

It was wildly UNFAIR of you to switch out the animals just before our arrival.

Thank you for leaving the baby pigs at least.

And thank you to the Barn Lady who totally photobombed this shot :)

You know how tough it is for 19 kiddies to go to the fair and be told that the animals are gone and they can’t go on the rides???  Yeah, unfair.

 

Love,

The Chick Who Wanted To Go On the Rides Too

 

~

 

Dear Kindergarteners,

SWOON!  Though I can’t show your faces here so as not to freak your parents out, I love that you are such a friendly bunch.

Love,

The Chick Who Ate Up Every Single Exuberant Hug

Dear Parents of Blake, Eastin, and Ethan,

Sorry for teaching your kids the “I Know and Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly” bit…

But I guarantee you that we had the funnest car in the caravan…

 

Love,

The Mom Who Grinned At Hearing, “Can we do that song about the lady who eats stuff again?”

 

~

 

Dear Mom & Dad,

Thanks for driving that car full of kids singing.

And for taking your grandson for a motorcycle ride in the yard.

You rock.

Stay tuned for everyone telling you how young you look.

 

Love,

Mom To the Lucky Grandkid

Dear Mr. Daddy,

 

Next time you wanna laugh at my horse-sneeze spattered outfit

I’ll send the avenger!

That’s right baby!  You’ve been NERFED!  Boy’s got aim.

(and too big pajamas)

 

Love,

One Well-Defended Momma

Do up your Friday right and go check out King Julien!

First off, I adore Itty Bit's pj's. My kids now wear t-shirts and boxers or lounge pants. I miss those cute pj's.

Sounds like the field trip was a success. I'm glad you had a good time. Usually when I go on a field trip I get irritated with the "bad" kid. Hahahaha

And to your mom- yes you look INCREDIBLY young! What is your secret and can you bottle it up and ship it to TX?

Thanks for linking up girly!

lifebythecreek said...

Yep, pj's get top billing, for SURE! Adam's into boxer briefs and wife beater t's. Lovely. And holy pig snot, are you KIDDING me? The FAIR? With K5 kiddos????? wow. I thought the zoo trip for first graders was scary, but the fair, with all of those carneys and crowds and .. but wait, you guys survived! In SPITE of the dumbheads who took all the fun stuff away! And since Julie basically took my lineup of what to say, I guess I'll parrot yet again and say "Are you SURE that's your mom and not your sister?" hahaaa... xoxox....

Pam Bowers said...

Naturally I had to watch that video clip. So funny.

I hate when you go to such an effort to do something fun only to have everything be closed. Grrrr...

I wanna ride in your car!

sara said...

and now I must thank you for putting that song into my head...which is going to be there on and off for the whole day....I may not be thanking you tonight! just sayin!

those stripped pjs rock!

feel better soon!!!

Saimi said...

Dear Rachel,

Thank you for making me laugh every time I read your funny posts!

Angie Vik said...

I'd admire your bravery to accompany 19 little kids on a field trip. Itty Bit is so blessed to not only have fun parents, but fun grandparents.

He & Me + 3 said...

Hope that you are feeling better today. Being sick is no fun...especially throwing up.
Love Itty Bit's pjs. So cute. My guy wears those kind too.
We love nerf guns too.
That motorcycle picture is the cutest too!

Amy said...

You are amazing. I love your short but sweet letters. They have perked me up today.... and today I more than needed it!

Just think, your momma still looks so good.... YOU will age fantastically too! Lucky lady you!

Why in the world did they take them to the fair if there really wasn't a fair to go to? I mean they would have been just as happy going to a playground, no? At least they all had a good time and all 19 made it back to where they belonged. Success!

Anonymous said...

Feel better, Honey, in Jesus Name! Amen!

blueviolet said...

You're right. Your parents do look young! I love his face on the field trip, and that it was different from everyone else. Love the hugs and sweetness of those kids!

Singedwingangel said...

bwhahah I love that little bit likes to go his own way, makes it so much better.. love the pjs and the bike..boo to switching out the animals that sucked

Krystyn said...

Love these letters! And, seriously 19 kids at the fair? Brave, brave, brave.

Presley family said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE them all!!!! sounds like the field trip was a blast!!!! Ummmm... yes your mom... shoot not fair!!! I keep telling Jason that after all these sleepless night with Bubba I have earned botox... wink!

Jessica {Team Rasler} said...

I love every one of your letters. Totally made me smile tonight. I would be crazily counting to 19 all the time, too! Those kindergarten teachers are saints, I tell ya. I'll stick to my fourth graders, thank you! Glad you had a fabulous field trip, (despite the unfairness)!

Kitchen Belleicious said...

Love hearing about your days. Full of so much fun and laughter. I heart little pj's:) I remember field trips and thankfully grant isn't old enough for them yet- Not sure if I will ever be. I remember how bad we used to be:)

Shana said...

Oh no. I am so sorry you guys are sick. That is no fun. Kudos to you for going on the field trip too lol. I would be a nervous wreck. But I bet it was fun. They couldn't ride or pet the animals? That is a bummer! Love the pic of Itty and the grands on the bike though. Awesome. There is just something about little kids in cute pjs that kills me. I love them so much. My mother in law said, don't waste money on pajamas, just put a t shirt and underwear on him. But I love pajamas and can't help myself.

Stacy said...

I hope your sickness goes by very quickly. It is way too early in the sick season to be sick!

Good for you in going on that field trip. Our school does not do that stuff. However, the kids' summer camp went to all sorts of populated places. The kids got a lot of lectures on staying with their camp couselor and no wandering off. They made it through all right. :)

Emmy said...

Why would they take away the animals like that? And that is a great face! Good to have a child who does their own thing and doesn't just follow the crowd.

scooterpie said...

As USUAL. Hi-LARIOUS! You guys get the BEST field trips! I wanna go on the rides too! WE sing I Know An Old Lady WAY better than THAT old lady! Right Sis? Wishin I coulda gone w/ya-sounds like you all had a BLAST!!! Lucky kiddos!

heather @ everyday evans said...

LOVE saggy-butt pj's. And the old lady who swallowed a fly, classic.

Danielle said...

Love your kid's silly face! And teachers are amazing to somehow get all the same kids gathered to leave that they came with. :P
Sorry you got sick!! That's the pits!
And why did your mom have you when she was 5? That's way too young! ;)

Buckeroomama said...

Your LOI's are always such a fun read! I hope you are feeling much better now.

Yes, I am going to say it again: Your mom doesn't even look old enough to be your mom, let alone be anyone's grandma! :)

danette said...

Love it!! What a fun field trip, hope you get to feeling better soon (and glad to see you are so well defended, lol) :)
