So I realized I say "friends" almost too much, and as far as the children go, I think I might switch to "chickabiddies."  Maybe I'll just switch them completely and start these entries, "Chickabiddies!  I have SUCH A NUMBERED LIST FOR YOU today!"

Also, I'm writing them letters, a grand experiment to exercise their writing chops which has many faults, the worst of which being that it doesn't even correct their many written errors because I feel too bad once they actually write me a letter.  Defeats the purpose, a little.  One of my darlings has included a cutout-snowflake-like paper of the letter "K", some sort of Twilight trading card, and her interpretation of a carbon paper, with one side colored purple so that when I wrote on a paper against it, the purple would show up on what I had written.  Backwards, I guess.  She tends to give me small parcels stuffed in envelopes rather than paragraph-long letters like most everyone else.  I asked them about a time when they were scared, and she wrote me back about a psycho murder mystery movie she saw and a subsequent psycho murder mystery dream she had.  Oops.  She returned the question, as I encourage them to do, so after several attempts at something fourth-grade-scary friendly, I settled on a time we almost lost the dog when I was, oh, twelve.

Let me show you one in its glorious entirety, a (belated) response to my letter asking her with whom she would have dinner if she could pick anyone, living or dead; what they would eat; what she would ask this person:

If I could have dinner with anyone I wanted it would be Justin Bieber.  It would be him because he is cool he is a little like me.  Also I would like to be his friend.  I would ask him what is his favorite type of shoes?  Also what is his favorite food to eat?  I would talk about my family and ask him about his family.  I would eat spagehetti and for dessert banana pudding pie.  I would go out and eat in a restaurant because I don't know how to cook.  Miss Kaye I was wondering what does your mom look like can you describe her?  Also do you have any sisters and brothers?  See you later Miss.Kaye.
