Emperor has been so cute lately. He's learning to express himself more every day with the written word. Today as I was eating lunch, Emperor went to his desk to write this to surprize me:

Emperor's street address
Emperor's city, state zip

Dear momy:

You make me smile when i'm near you. I love you. I love heaning (hanging) around with you. How much do you think I love you? well more than you can think. By by.

love,
Emperor

Emperor finished his artwork for school. He was supposed to make a little book of monster drawings, using a new "how to draw" type book we got for ideas. He had several little monsters, one on each page. I told him I really need some background on each monster so I know a little about where each one comes from. I was expecting some trees or grass behind each monster. Instead, I got a character synopsis of each monster. This is Ted, and he's from Chicago, he'd tell me.

(Ted? Chicago? Wouldn't you expect a proper monster to be named Ggrrung and be from Zugul or something? And I meant picture background, not the other kind... Oh, well.)

Incidentally, there are other monsters from Nebraska and Ohio, two from China, and two from "Mordor."

  3. What a precious boy. Did you have a little cry when he gave you his letter?

    I love his literal translation of what you requested. That's something MY kid would do, only in her case it would be a wicked attempt at being a smarty-pants!
