Keeping notes

The 6 year old is going through a bit of a note writing stage. Always furtively scribbling away - and no one's allowed to look - then little letters and cards just appear, by our bed, on the table, or in my knitting bag - all kinds of places.

They are terribly sweet and funny….and numerous. I've kept the best ones, but I'm afraid the rest have been 'filed away'. I've learnt to be careful though, after all hell broke loose when she found a few I'd filed in the recycling pile…

This one's a keeper.

  2. Wonderful! I've still got some of my girls' notes from when they were little. We have Tilly and Ruby today, so I'd better get myself organised! X

  3. So lovely! My almost six year old does the same thing. She sits for hours writing little notes for her school friends and gives them out each morning. Her favourite Christmas presents were the numerous gel pens and small note pads she received. So cute x

    1. Sweet! Love it when they get so much pleasure from a simple pack of pens and paper x

  4. Gorgeous. I think it's a girl thing, as my 7yo is still furiously writing notes and cards to people in a similarly secretive way. They are very special, although I'll also admit to having to 'file' a few :-)

    By the way, I gave you a mention here: http://loveallblogs.com/5-blogs-you-need-in-your-life-chosen-by-sally-sellwood/

    1. Thanks so much for that Sally, really lovely of you!
      Think it is more of a girl thing, but my 8 year old used to be a prolific note writer too. His were mainly sorry notes though - usually appeared after he'd been naughty :)

  5. Soooooo sweet! I am working at a school at the moment, I got a note the other day asking "how old are you?" from one of the children, underneath they had written "my grandad is 72". I don't know what they were getting at!! :D

  6. How lovely! My auntie still has a birthday thank you letter my mum made me write on behalf of my brother who was five. I regaled her with all the unsavoury behaviour displayed by the boys at his party, it seems I was appalled that they licked their plates!

    1. that's brilliant! Great one to keep! I was staying with my mum this weekend and asked if she had any I'd written - she said she did...somewhere...

  7. Oh how sweet is that!!!! Love that she is so secretive about it, then launches them on you. What a sweet heart, must be a reflection on all your parenting. X
