Sisterly "Love"

I spent some time Saturday afternoon sorting through pictures and keepsakes, and found the following message, written to me by Cassidy when she was around 7 or 8:

Dear Mom,
I am very sorry for doing stuff to Cailin on accident. Now I know I need to be a little bitt carefuler around miss senstative one. And I really don't know what I did, I'm just writing this because you told me to write a letter to you.
Innacent Cassidy
(The mis-spellings are my favorite part. Seriously, does it get any cuter?)

We have letters from our son to his sister, when he was around 8 - 10, constantly in trouble and apologizing, begging his sister to forgive him so he'd have his playmate back. Keep the notes - they'll become more precious with every year.

Thank you for your visits, Kelly. It's always great to see your name pop up in my comments.

Lurve this note!

My son (13) just sent me a memo a few weeks ago (he was doing memos for a school assignment)re: his "complete and utter lack of privacy". We're fine, and very close, but he was so angry--it's almost funny to read. Actually, it is funny--and the language and usage are so good. I was proud of him in a twisted sort of way. :) At least he was writing, right?
