Want To Go With You

To my son Tommy,

Mommy and I were headed out tonight sans child. Trying to explain and prepare you for this turned out to be a gift certificate for a two hour tantrum that was instantly and automatically redeemed. It seems to be par for the course lately and your mother and I believe allergies to pollen or such are causing you to sleep poorly and thus setting you in this permanent pissy mood. We used every psychological ploy we could to get you to calm down. Finally we resorted to the old parental standby of buying your cooperation with a toy from the store. You ended up with a plastic police kit from CVS to lock up your godmother who we roped in to watching you for the evening. Between that and the Benadryl I hope your Aunt Na had an easier time than when we left.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
