Grant's class is studying the US Postal system... how to address an envelope... where the stamp goes, etc. They are practicing writing letters too. I received the following letter in the mail yesterday:
(Just in case you can't read it... here it is word for word.)
Your the BEST mom ever! You also are a great cook and you the best food! Can I have a pet lizard please? I can pay for the lizard. I can catch insects to feed it. I promise to take care of it myself. PLEASE?
I love the beautiful artwork depicting the great relationship you envision having with your lizard.
You know what Momma envisions...?
Momma cleaning up after the lizard and you get tired of caring for it.
Momma having to find insects to feed the lizard because you didn't have time before football practice.
Momma finding crickets and other bugs all over the house because you lost some on the way to the lizard's cage.
The only way a lizard (or any other reptile) is coming into this house is if it is in the form of a belt or a pair of shoes.
