Friends. Please feel free to save this email in case of emergency. Parenting is hard. We must share resources. It's not cheating 'cause we belong to each other. *Don't forget to plug in different names. Carry On, Warriors.
Dear Mrs. B,
I am writing to regretfully explain that Tish's homework folder has somehow disappeared into the black hole that is our family home. Since you know my baby girl you might understand that this occurrence is: The Official End of The World. THE END, Mrs. B. It is over. I am trying to contain the weeping and gnashing of teeth, but Tish has decided that since her folder is missing, it is time for her to finally give up on making something of herself. This is quite sad for our whole family. We really thought this one had potential. Thank God we still have two more.
Please accept this mama's humble plea for a new homework packet. As for the original packet, I am certain I will find it somewhere in our mini-van right before Tish graduates from college. IF we recover from Foldergate, that is. If not, it has been wonderful knowing you.
If it is against the rules to provide another packet, we accept our fate. I simply ask that if this is the case: please don't return Tishy to us. Consider taking her home with you. She just needs a couple grilled cheeses a day. I have done my best with her but we can't win them all. I really do wish the two of you great joy and success in all your future endeavors.
Mrs. B- all my continued gratitude and awe to you. Thank you for showing up day after day to give your all to our kids. Thanks for doing the most important work in the world. You are one of our family's heroes.
The Messy Meltons
PS. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE GIVE US ANOTHER PACKET.
