O’Mama sent her daughters, ages 12 and 8, to summer camp. She’s been suffering withdrawal symptoms and, just to make the experience that much better, she received this letter from the 8 year old in the mail today:
Dear Mommy and Daddy,
I want to come home, I miss home, I miss you and Shem (editor’s note – Shem is the dog). I hate first session.
Your miserable daughter,
I’m sorry for the baby, and sorrier for O’Mama, because I can’t imagine how torn she must be between “tough it out” and “give me my baby back,” but it was the “your miserable daughter” part that sent me over the edge. My GOODNESS does the child have a flair for the dramatic!
