A Really Good Try

I received this letter from my younger son last week. 

I told him it was a truly excellent letter.  He didn’t believe me, because it was unsuccessful in persuading me to buy a hamster.  It could have been the best letter in the world and included chocolates, and it still wouldn’t have persuaded me…  I’m not a hamster girl.

    Big chuckles with the first line and everyone after.

    Hey, I'm for him having a dwarf hamster.

  2. Hamsters are actually pretty sweet as pets. A little smelly, I admit, but cute.

    Your dog might be overexcited though.

  3. I enjoyed reading that very much! What a great letter… and still I completely understand your refusal :)

  4. I'm going to cave here and say plllllleeeeaaase let him get the hamster

  5. That is SO cute!!! I'm not sure which part I liked better – "don't fret" or "keep this in your mind". Is someone working on persuasive essays in school? 😉

  6. This was adorable!!! I love finding such special moments like this!!! haha i love that he was upset for still not getting the hamster. He wasn't fooled by you just like you weren't fooled by him.

    Too cute!
