2012 Slice-of-Life Story Challenge | 30

Dear Mommy,

I know we're just five minutes from home
and we've ridden in the car for almost an hour,
but I just couldn't keep my eyes open anymore.
I loved that Grandma came down to hang out with us,
and we had vanilla bean frappuccinos on the way to the outlet mall,
and enough snacks to keep me busy while we found new clothes and laughed.
We even had McDonald's take-out on the way home.
I want you to know that I think spring break is great
because I love it when we can do anything we want.  All day long.
I also love it when Grandma comes to visit.
She is the cheese to our macaroni.

Love you,

P.S. I think the clothes you picked out for me today rock.  Thank you. 
P.P.S. Sorry for the chaos in Stride Rite earlier...I just got excited about new shoes.  I wish you would've listened to Grandma because I really liked the Star Wars ones.  They lit up.  Next time, please?  Just think about it.


  1. Shopping is so exhausting! What a fun day with grandma and mom.

  2. I love the shift to your son's perspective here. I have a feeling you nailed his voice.

  3. "She is the cheese to our macaroni." I love this line. It says so much!

  4. You have really captured this little guy and made me feel like I know him. Thanks


Hi! I'd love to hear what you are thinking right now, so please take a sec and drop me a line. I'm so glad you stopped by today -- thanks a billion. :)
