Maddie’s Letter to Santa

Maddie has finally gotten around to writing a letter to Santa.  Do you like the way I said that?  I made it sound like it’s a burden and that we’ve just been so busy that she hasn’t set it as a priority.  Okay, maybe that tone is just in my mind but the fact of the matter is that we made the decision to put NO pressure on her to write the letter.  Last year at this time, we mentioned writing a letter and it was followed by tears of frustration because she didn’t think she could write a letter.  So, this year we haven’t even mentioned it but our blossoming daughter took it upon herself and wrote not only a letter from herself but also wrote one on behalf of her sister… all on her own.  She asked me how to spell Leapster and Zhu Zhu but the rest is hers.   We are very proud of her for writing the letters in spite of what she wrote about my cooking!  We’ll see if Santa is feeling generous this year…

    Dear Maddie,

    Your letter to Santa is terrific. I also think it was very kind of you to write one for your little sister. What a strong writer you are! You are a great kid and I think you have been very good so I bet some wonderful things will arrive under your tree.

    Merry Christmas sweetheart,
    From Mrs Hossack
