To Believe or Not To Believe a 6-Year-Old

Years ago, when S was six, she desperately wanted to help her older brother. He had hurt himself and S. was insisting on nursing his injuries. Her 11-year-old brother obviously had little faith in her medical skills and wouldn’t let S near him.

So S wrote her big brother a persuasive note.

"Why do you never believe me. I believe you so why do you not believe me. And I love you. From S."

Bless little S, her persuasion techniques, and the effort she took to spell “from.”

Don’t stop believing.

Except that song is now stuck in my head.

  1. Most 6 year-olds I know (including mine) have over-inflated egos. I don’t blame the big brother.

  2. Kids handwriting just never stops being funny.

  3. Art Linkletter was right. For those of you too young to remember, he wrote a book called “Kids Say the Darnedest Things.”

  4. So funny! This is my new favorite website!

  5. This blog is great. I use to work at a summer camp and kids really do say and do the best thing.
