Notes: Part 2

Back in September I blogged about having to rewrite The Older Daughter's absence excuse. It had been a little too out of the ordinary for her tastes. The Younger Daughter, however, has no such reservations. She loves odd notes, the wilder the better. Together, we have entirely too much fun with her teachers.

Mrs. K.,

Would it be possible for you to dash off a note to me when [The Younger Daughter] fails to turn in an assignment?...We find that hanging [The Younger Daughter] upside down and lashing her bare feet with wet noodles is a much better deterrent if applied promptly after an infraction.

Thank you,
Cindy Lawson

Have I mentioned that this school (and our family) is blessed with extraordinarily good-humored faculty as a whole? A very good thing.

Your daughters are fortunate to have you as their mother -- and the teacher gets a smile. Sounds like win-win-win to me.

Meg said...

You are seriously the coolest mom ever...seriously!

Cindy said...

You are both very kind, and my children are both very patient. The teachers, I've found, often do get a smile out of things like this, especially if genuinely encouraging and appreciative notes are sent as well as the simply ludicrous ones.

Gee,(thinking to myself) why couldn't you have been my mother?
