Some Tings


B Deer Um,

Let me tell you some tings. My anty Robyn was here. I likeded jumping on her. She kissed me a lot and I told her that's issdisgussting. But she just laugheded and said "You're beautiful." (I'm a good speller, huh?, and I didn't even go to kindergarten yet!) Anyway, I tolded my anty that boys aren't beautiful. We're cool! 

 Butt-tt! (I like to use the word "butt" all the time. It's fun. I add extra "t" sounds to the end. Anty Robyn tryded not to laugh when I sed butt butt--butt butt butt!--she always does.)  It's fun to talk about butts and get a tension from grown ups cuz I'm so cool and cute. I can't even be bad if I try. Butt I won't talk about butts any more. Are you sitting on your butt? Um, okay.  I'm really good and sweet and my anty loves me. I like to tackle her when she's sitting on her butt.

Um, Anty Robyn says to start new pair-of-giraffes here. Or pair-of-graphs? I dunno but now I want to go to the zoo. So she says she misses you and is going to McDonalds for a long time. I hope she brings me back a chocolet shake. 

 Okay bye.

 Dear Friends,

Isn't he precious? What Jeremy wanted to say is that I feel lousy for this. I'm hoping his cute face and note will make it all right...I know I've been MIA for a while and will be MIA again for the next 10 days or so. It was a wonderful trip to LA. Now, I'm going, not to McDonalds, but to be a counselor at a camp through Ronald McDonald Charities. It's a combination of social work and camping, both of which I've been missing. I'll be back mid-month. Unfortunately, I am only connected through my desktop. It's been incredibly difficult to be off-line, with withdrawal symptoms surging through my body (I've been typing in my sleep, cursing blogger intermittently throughout the day, and hoping you know I'm okay and not flaky).

Be well and safe. I'll be thinking about and missing you. I'll bring you back a chocolate shake, though I can't promise there will be any left when I return.

  1. What you'll be doing is much more important than anything you can do around here.
    By the way, tell Jeremy I love saying "butt," too.
    And I'm 53.

  4. Al, "butt" is a fun word to say at any age. Thanks for the kind words too.

    Thanks Julie! I'm bringing plenty of paper, whether or not I'll have time to write.

    Betty, I agree about Jeremy. Thanks, friend.

  17. Yeah, okay, I guess it's a worthwhile reason to ignore me...

    Great and cute post Robyn! Have a great time. It's a good thing (and healthy) to get some down time. I think you're even more awesome for donating your time!
