Just a little favor?

The progeny of this marriage, little Anna Emily, turns 10 years old on November 5th. It's a biggie for her, as she believes and will argue to a fine point that this means she is no longer a kid, but a "pre-teen" and darned near an adult. (I've got news for her, but that's another story!)

Anna, Delftsman, and Mamamontezz

So I'd like to make a modest request of our readers. It won't cost you much more than a little time and a stamp. We would like you to pick up an inexpensive birthday card or write her a little birthday note, address it to her, and mail it. It can be anything, just something with an out of state address and a "Happy Birthday" on it. She's not going to be getting a lot this year, so we are hoping a plethora of mail will off-set any disappointment. Kids get pretty excited about birthdays, and I hate to see her disappointed.

If you'd like to make her birthday special, please let us know in the comments here that you are willing to mail her a birthday card. We'll email you back with our snailmail address.

Thank you in advance for your kindness. You have all been very kind and supportive to us during these last few difficult months, and I hate to ask for this, but it's something small that would mean a lot to a little girl. None of this has been her fault.

Let's see.... How many times have you helped me without even realizing it? Truly, you have no clue, I bet.
You bet I will.
Send away.

As soon as I get my hunk of junk car back on the road I'll send her a card and I'll send you the other thing we talked about. Don't need your addy. 10 is an important age for a little girl

Please send address - I'll be glad to send a card.
I'm sorry if this a second post - it didn't seem like I managed to get it right the first time.
Love the photo - you all look so happy.

Please send me the address to send Anna a special birthday card from Long Island, New York.

Would it be okay if I order a book for her from Amazon.com? What does she like to read? I remember being that age, and I sure would like to help in a small way.

Let me know!

Posted by: Omnibus Driver at October 29, 2004 02:12 PM

I'm in too. Just send me the address. And I too would like to know what kind of books she likes so I can see what Amazon has to offer. :)

Oooh, yes! Please do send snailmail addy to my e-mail, and I'll make sure she gets at LEAST a card from the blighters. I love birthdays! Especially for adorable little girls! (I have three boys...I'm sick of trucks and tanks and GI Joes. Can I send her a princess outfit or something? A Barbie? A girly present? Please??)
