Baby Advice

We were working on writing letters in 2nd grade recently so I asked the kids to write to Logan, Smokey, Barbie Baby (that’s what the kids call the baby since we aren’t sharing the name), or me. Here are some of my favorites! (I’ve corrected the spelling since most people don’t read 2nd grade spelling everyday)

Does mama get ice cream too?

Dear Mrs. Mastain,
Why will you not tell us Baby Barbie’s name? Her name can’t be Baby Barbie, because that doesn’t sound right. By the way, you should always give Baby Barbie ice cream when she asks for it.
Your friend,
S

Smokey, pay careful attention to the last piece of advice!

Dear Smokey,
Have a great time with the baby. Don’t eat or hurt that baby. Don’t eat the baby’s clothes. Don’t break the crib. Don’t bark at the baby. Don’t bark while the baby is sleeping.
Sincerely,
D

So you don’t get in trouble at school:

Dear Barbie Baby,
Here are some good things you should know. #1 Be good to mommy, daddy, grandma, Mrs. Gardner (Shannon), and grandpa. #2 Don’t disobey anyone who is in charge. #3  Eat what is good for you.
Sincerely,
C

Cook and clean, lol:

Dear Barbie Baby,
You need to learn how to cook and clean for Mrs. Mastain and Mr. Mastain. You need to learn how to say your 123 and ABC. You need to learn how to be good.
Your friend,
G

Someone knows I need to let things go:

Dear Mrs. Mastain,
Good moms have dirty, ovens, sticky floors, and happy kids. I hope you are one of those happy moms. Please tell me the baby’s name. Write back.
Your friend,
S

And probably the funniest:

Dear Smokey,
Don’t knock the baby over! Oh, and please don’t think the baby is a squeaky toy and try to squeak her. She isn’t a squirrel either. That’s how to treat the baby good.
Sincerely,
J

Ahh, the wisdom of 8 year olds.
