Yeah, that's what a million scribbles on a giant piece of paper means. A note, a letter, or a list of things to do to make her "smile and dance." Today the conversation went like this...
Shannie: "Mom I wrote you a note!"
Mom: "Thanks Shannie what does it say?"
Shannie: "You know I can't read you'll have to read it to me."
*this is the part that causes the problem... I have absolutely no idea what she was thinking when she wrote this umm... note, so it continues...*
Mom: "Dear Mom, thanks for making me breakfast and..."
Shannie: (interrupting) "That's not what it says silly mommy."
Mom: "Okay, what does it say then?"
Shannie: (rolling her eyes) "I can't read!"
Mom: (trying again) "Dear Mom, today I had a lot of fun doing puzzles..."
Shannie: (exasperated) "MOM! that's not what it says!!"
Mom: "Okay... can you remember what you wrote?"
Shannie: (Almost in tears) "Just read it!!"
Mom: "Dear Mom, is that part right?"
Mom: "Today I danced with princes and rode purple ponies through the wildflowers in the most beautiful part of the world. (shannie nods) I met fairies, and magical creatures."
Shannie: "only nice magical creatures."
shannie: "but there's more (pointing 1/2 way down the scribble page) right here."
Mom: "on my way home I met a nice queen who traded me a sparkley horse for my purple pony, it made me very happy."
shannie: (nodding again) "and then we had dinner. The end."
Mom: "Oh, I'm glad you remembered that part."
Shannie: "don't worry mom, I'll go work on another one right now."
Mom: "I can't wait."
