A letter of apology

Published January 20, 2016 by lynn k scott

Most of you know I have a very forward-thinking, original 10-year old daughter.  That being said, yesterday she surprised me with a note she had written when she had downtime in class.

Like many preteens, as a parent I know nothing.  Many situations are met with eye rolls and exasperated sighs.  She’s developing a healthy dose of sarcasm for her retorts to questions (not sure if I am happy or scared).

I will premise the letter stating she has always been a phonetic speller.  I’m happy with diligent work, she is improving.  When I first read the letter, I was crying (from laughing so hard).

For those of you who don’t read phonetics, here’s the translation:

Dear Mom,

I’m so sorry for fighting with you so much because I’m going through my hormones stuff and it is not a good thing at all right now. I’m just sad that’s all Mom!

I really didn’t mean to burst her bubble but she has no idea how good she truly has it.  I mean after all, she’ll be receiving her monthly “friend” in the near future and then I bet she truly will understand what “not good” means.

I love she drew the both of us.  She apologizes and I graciously forgive her.  She hasn’t been that bad, normal kid stuff, but I appreciate the effort she put into this.

I know I’m an awful mom.  Sharing a private letter with the world.  I see a child in touch with her feelings, acknowledging poor behavior and using her manners.  I can’t have failed that much as a parent, right?  I’ve got a few years yet before she tells how I’ve ruined her life and all that, but for now, I’ll take these adorable apologies and remind myself what a good kid I have.
