Leanne imparts her wisdom on the next generation
One of the most beautiful things about my sister is her innocent candor. Today, she sent another email to Miss Josie (Catfish with ketchup) . In true Leanne fashion, no smoke was blown, no words were minced, no details were sugarcoated. I now present a valuable life lesson issued from experience, aunt to niece: For every action, there is a consequence.
dear catfishwith ketup
cant wailt to see you

If you get rude and talk back, you will have to miss Special Olympics bowling; but mom will still love you.
This actually takes me back to my childhood when Leanne would misbehave and get sent to her room. She would beg me to bring her a piece of paper and a pen so she could draft an apology letter to my mom. It usually went a little something like this: "Dear Mom. I sorry you got mad at me. I forgive you. Out my room please. Love, Leanne" Worked like a charm every time!
Josie - I hope you're paying attention. That's 33 years of experience talking. Just wait until it's time for her to give you career advice...That's another post for another day!
