Dear Mr. Happy

Dear Mr. Happy,

Last night, when you were in such a bad mood, did you realize that you growled? I'm sorry you have so many assignments and tests due at one time. Didn't you say that the English paper was originally due on Friday and then the professor said it could be turned in on Monday? You should have been happy to have the weekend to work on that paper. And didn't I see you on Flickr uploading pictures from this past weekend? It's all about time management.

And please note, the next time I ask if there is something I can do to help, please don't suggest that I smother you with a pillow. Because that is dangerous. And it sounded like a great idea.

I won't be here when you get up because I don't feel that your ray of sunshine will help me have a great Monday. Good luck on your music theory test!

Love you!

Mom

Music theory was one of my most difficult classes in college!

Too funny that you posted this - my son was stomping around, ready to quit guitar because he had a theory-ish assignment last week. I get growled at if I offer help too. :-)

Happy Monday!

You silly girl. Don't you know that it's all YOUR fault? ;)

Consider smothering

LOL This letter could have so been written about me complaining to Eric about my homework : ) Smoothering sounds like a good alternative to my English paper as well!

ohhhhh, so good to hear. My sixteen year old boy can drive me insane with his negativity.... So why does this make me smile? I love how you are NOT sucked into feeling guilty - keep the confidence going, it helps mine.
