Magical Moments of Parenting #705

I had a coffee this week with my friend Louise. She was showing me a note that her four-year-old had left on her dressing table.

In childish script, he’d painstakingly written, “To Mummy, I love you, From Harry xxxxxXXXxxx”

Bless, so cute.

I love when kids do things like that.

Only this weekend, for example, Flea handed me a note she’d written over dinner while we were in Pizza Express.

Here it is:


(For the benefit of those not familiar with the hieroglyphics that pass for handwriting when you’re five it says: To Mum , the puppies are evil. Flea.)

Nope, I've no idea, either.

I stuck it on the fridge alongside Flea's drawing of "The mad scientist who makes the world turn grey".


Sally is a full-time blogger and founder of the Tots100, Trips100, Foodies100 and HIBS100 communities, along with the MAD Blog Awards. She spends a bit too much time on the Internet. She’s also a very happy Mum to Flea, the world’s coolest ten year old.

    And it doesn’t stop. I get litle letters on my pillow from my 11 year olds. From Max it is – please can I go to Dunkirk with a metal detector and look for a tank or a gun they may have left behind, or maybe some ammo. From his twin Robyn she asked for a tortoise that will stand still and listen to her unlike her hamster that is just too busy to listen. We now have Beanz the tortiose (I like low maintenance pets, he doesn’t smell) and we’re off to Dunkirk at half-term. I don’t get lovely notes from the 14 year old – just bills to pay or ‘I ate all the bread’. Ah well. Enjoy it while it lasts ladies!

    Puppies are indeed evil in Pizza Express. It’s the elephants in EAT you want to watch out for.
    Tops does this too. Normally hers are
    Dear Mummy,
    I Love you and I hope you sleep well.
    Love Tops
