My 5-year-old wants an iPad. He wrote me a very persuasive letter on why he should get one…
Yesterday Darren came home from school with an assignment he completed in class. The task was to write someone a persuasive letter about something he wants using three supportive sentences. Behold the letter…
[Dear Mom, I should get an iPad because I will play with it. I should get an iPad because I want to draw a leprechaun. –>I should get an iPad because I want to play a puzzle game. Love, Darren]
Of course he wants an iPad. What five-year-old doesn’t? And while it wasn’t part of the assignment, I took it upon myself to write a persuasive letter back to Darren about what I want (also using three supportive sentences).
I want an iPad so I can watch movies in bed while making excessive online purchases and checking Facebook. I want an iPad so I can go on Pinterest and pretend that I’m going to paint an old picture frame and create the artwork to put in it first thing in the morning. I want an iPad so I can read while I wait in an excessively long carpool line every. single. day.
P.S. You’re not getting an iPad.
If you’re actually lucky enough to own an iPad, you should park it on one of these awesome charging stations from Dock Station. But do me a favor and please don’t mention it to Darren.
