This morning things were a little hairy. Charley's nose seemed to have stopped running but his mood left much to be desired. So I found two shoe boxes and a load of stickers, foamy stickies, and markers and we decorated their very own mailboxes. They then picked special spots to place their mailboxes. I set up a post office with markers and stampers. Gave them each a folder with paper and envelopes...the folder made it that much more exciting and official. Now they are busy making mail, checking their boxes, and thanking each other for their nice letters. I am even getting quite the load of mail.
This is something I grew up playing with my mom, sister, brother, and friends. It is something my mom, I am assuming, started and it was a hit for years and years. So I will carry on the mailbox tradition. Happy Thursday!
