New Plan

October 23, 2006


I am, admittedly, the world’s worst aunt.  I never write, never call, and get birthdays wrong or don’t get cards or presents sent.  It’s a horrible flaw.  Anyway, I have a plan to communicate with my nephews more.  Target has these cool card & envelope sets.  The cards aren’t foldy cards, so I wrote a note on one, and wrote my address & put stamps on two of them (so now they’ve become postcards from them to me).  The plan is for the boys to read my card, which (loosely) says  “Draw something that you see right now and get this postcard into the mail lickity-split!”  Hopefully they’ll think it’s funny & fun.

a box of cheery colors!

    I LOVE those cards (and the idea, by the way!). I must get some…Target, I love you, Target…

    I thought they were bed sheets! I worried not only “the world’s worst aunt,” but was shocked knowing the EXCELLENT educator you are, you couldn’t find a better gift! (Upon reading this comment I hope you look past the grammar and get the jist of what I am saying!)

    *Sigh* The BOX is not the present -- Every so often I’ll send a letter with postcards inside. It’s a communication thing.

    […] ___The nephews have written back!  Hooray!! If you’ll remember, I sent them some self-addressed stamped postcards with the mission to draw the first thing they saw. The orange is from Charlie -- eight years old. I especially like the stinky sock. (It shows we are related.)  Jacob -- six -- drew the popsicle, which shows that he’s a boy after Lloyd’s own heart.  We’ll be playing another round soon! […]
