dir dad

In primary today Sam was given a little love note to write and put in his dads shoes as a surprise. "I even know what shoes he is wearing tomorrow!"

Sam was devastated when Josh got a hold of it and read it on the way out the door.

Just now, on a bike ride in the dark with Sam, I was praising his recent advancements in reading (it didn't come exactly natural to him). He beamed and bragged he even wrote a letter on his own today.

"Oh?" asks I.

"Yes. When dad found my surprise note, I wrote him another one and put it on his pillow."

"How sweet! What did it say?!"

"Dear Dad,
I hate you.
Hate,
Sam"

Josh said the same thing, Jill. I think I got notes signed Satan back then.

That'll teach Josh to make sure he only opens notes at approved times! I mean really Josh!

That's pretty funny. Seth especially enjoyed the thought of a note signed "Satan".

I'm with Jill and Josh on this, but you can't just blame Ms Chipmano. I think this apple didn't fall far from the tree.
