Writer's Workshop- What my little girl might say

This week I chose prompt #1 for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. Dear Mommy/Daddy write a letter from one of your children to you. I loved this idea.

Miss K- October 2009

Dear Mommy,

I never realized how much work you put into the week to take care of me. I haven't put much thought into even one day of the stuff you do for me. It's nice to have a mommy wake me up and let me crawl back into the recliner when I am not ready to face the world. I love that you make my breakfast for me and put it on the table. I enjoy sitting next to my brother even if we do get into trouble if we talk or play too much. I really wish you would let me have chocolate milk and get rid of the red container of milk. It tastes yuck! Have you tried it yet? I really wish you would get the purple container again. I promise I will drink at least two glasses a day. Pretty please.
Thank you for picking out my outfit everyday. I wish you would just let me wear my flip flops to school. I don't mind wearing them all the time.
I know I should make my bed faster and get dressed instead of playing with my toys but it's more fun. I am a big girl now and I can get it all done before we leave. I know I should read the clock but what fun is that?
I love it when you pick me up from school. Thank you for getting there on time yesterday because I was worried the first day. You took a LONG time. It was getting hot out there on the sidewalk. I know the other kids were waiting too but it seemed like forever.
I wish you would let me have a snack of chocolate chip cookies instead of the banana or apple in the afternoon. It will fill me up more. I promise that I won't get "hyper" as you say. I'll share the cookies with Little E. I promise. Really!
Thank you for picking up my toys while I went to school. I know I forgot to turn off my radio again but Teeko likes to listen to the music. It'll be okay mom. Can we get a slushee everyday? I love the slushees. They are refreshing.
Thank you mom for reminding me to brush my teeth and hair every night. I am forgetful and I am so busy playing on the bunk bed that I forget. I love you mommy. You are the best and I love you.
Can we get a slushee now?
Miss K

I found your blog through The Trendy Treehouse's new friend friday. I wanted to say I love this idea of writing a letter from the child' perspective. I will certainly have to try it. Thanks for sharing!
