Dear So and So... Just Sayin' Edition

Dear Tim,
Yes, I'll be happy to take your cat, Tucker for the summer while you look for a place to live after you graduate.  I do not, however, take any responsibility to any damage inflicted on him by the 2 resident cats, Cameron and Mason, who have claws and know how to use them.   Not my problem that he was de-clawed and has no way to protect himself. 

Love you, but I'm just sayin'

Dear Tim,
I'm curious if you asked Daddy Dearest if he would take the cat, since he has one too.  Either you didn't because you knew I'd do it for you, or he said no.

Just wonderin'

Dear Gina,
Congrats on getting your passport in such a timely fashion for your trip to Ireland in May.  You know what would be a LOVELY Mother's Day gift?  If I could go with you to Ireland.  I love Colleen too, ya know!  AND I have a passport! 

Afraid you might get lost on your way,
Your loving Mother

Dear Paul,
Well it seems that you have left this life as oddly as you lived it.  You were an odd duck and you sure knew how to entertain people.  Your imitation of your father was uncanny by all accounts.  I did enjoy your music and your company when we saw you.  I'm glad I was able to spend Christmas with you.  You surely will be missed.

Rest in peace,

Dear Dani,
I'm glad you had such a great time with Lauryn in Oregon on your Spring Break.  Do you realize you were able to visit her three times in the past year?  It won't be long before Lauryn and Lillian will be visiting us this summer!  It sucks that your plane leaving Denver was delayed and now you'll be landing in Philly at the height of rush hour.  I am very happy, however, that you now have wheels and I won't have to drive you back to school on Sunday!


Dear Winter,
Good riddance!!!  I'm glad you're gone and don't show your ugly face around here again!  At least not until 2011 and feel free to skip the Northeast next year.

Had enough,

Dear VodkaMom,
I do believe I have hit the maximum times I'm allowed to vote for you on Babble's Top 50 Mommy Bloggers.  I tested my theory on a blog far below yours and I was able to vote for that one.  That really sucks because reading the goody goody, my baby is perfect and aren't I a wonderful mother blogs make me gag.  7th Place is surely a great place to be, but I was hoping we could get you closer to the top.  I'll still try to remember to keep the plug for Babble on my posts. 

One of your biggest fans and fellow uh... Oregonian,

Dear Readers,
Why not pop over the pond to Kat's Place in the UK, grab the button and get some stuff off your chest?  Trust me, it feels good to release it all!  Don't forget to Link your Dear So and So and lots of others will be able to read them too!  Go on!  You know you want to!

So much fun! Thanks! I think your daughter should ABSOLUTELY take you with her to Ireland! Do you think you can successfully wear her down? Good luck!

I love your So & So's - your kids must enjoy being your muses.

I want to go to Ireland as well. We'll see, maybe, one day.

Amy said...

I think Ireland for Mother's Day would be lovely. Hope your dd gets this hint.

Joanie M said...

No, I was just messing about going with Gina to Ireland. This is her trip, not mine. Besides I don't have the dough. :)

Heather said...

Such loving notes to the kids, loved it!

Alix said...

I want to go to Ireland too. We can be chaperones, but knowing us, we're the ones who'd need chaperoning.

Great So and So's my dear.
