My cute niece called one day and left me a message that went something like this, "Um, Aunt Amy, um, this is Greta and I am calling to say that I like watermelon slushies from Sonic just like you do. My mom said those are your favorite. Um, bye."
So, I wrote her a letter and mailed her a Sonic gift card to go buy slushies with. She lives here locally but I like to send mail to the kids. I LOVED getting mail when I was younger and still do. When I write the ones that can't read, I try to send rebus letters using pictures for words.
