Mom’s hilarious note from her 9-year-old goes viral
Kids say the darnedest things and, once they get old enough, they also write them down in garbled, shaky letters so you can save the hilarity forever and ever. Every parent has likely gotten a hilarious note or five from their kids, and that’s why the internet is going nuts over this guilt-ridden note a mom blogger got from her nine-year-old after a spat about cleaning her room.
In a post on The Unmumsy Mum Facebook page, a mom says she got into an argument with her nine-year-old daughter, Ellie, over the messy state of her bedroom. At one point, Ellie exercised that flare for the dramatic that all kids possess and told her mom she’d rather be sold on eBay than have to clean her room, and she didn’t want to be a part of their family any longer. In the heat of the moment, the mom says she fired back by telling Ellie that, because of her behavior, no one would buy her.
The two later made up, but not before Ellie “sent” her mom a hilarious and endearing note, apologizing for being “mean” and taking her mother to task for her comments about how no one would buy her on eBay.
“Dear Mum,” the note begins. “Yes, I agree I was mean to you and did very wrong. I am very sorry, but the fact that I am poorley and wanted to rest has just flew out the window [sic]. I am sorry, but the fact that you said no one would buy me really shattered my heart. At least now I know how ashamed you are of me. All my love, Ellie.”
The dramatic sentiment is one any parent will recognize. My oldest is four, and already she shouts at me that she’s going to run away and I’m the “meanest mom ever.” No one wants their kiddo to have a “shattered heart,” but you can’t help but giggle a little bit when you know she’s saying her heart was shattered by a lack of hypothetical buyers on eBay. In her post, Ellie’s mom confirmed the girl’s heart is “now mended” and said she shared the note because “kids know just how to get you in the guilts.”
Since her post went up, it’s been shared over 6,000 times and resulted in one of the most hilarious comment sections ever. Dozens of other parents are now sharing their own silly, nonsensical, and dramatic notes from kids.
From a 10-year-old: “Go away. ‘I’ don’t love you anymore meanies (never want to see you again) ever again [sic].”
This one is from a six-year-old, and says, “Mummy and Daddy Can I please come down? I’m the saddest I could be.” His dad wrote that the boy threw note down the stairs after being sent to his room. Said the father, “I was all for writing ‘no’ underneath and pushing it back under his door.”
This one is “escape plans” a mom found in her nine-year-old’s room after he got sent away on timeout: “Get a bag of close, open the window, say goodbye forever, go out of the window, shut the window and run away [sic].” Sounds like a solid plan, and thanks for shutting the window so we don’t waste perfectly good air conditioning.
This kid got high-tech and sent her parents the equivalent of a break-up text.
And, this one? Well, this one speaks for itself.
Oh kids, never change.
