The Learning of Sarcasm

An email exchange with Benjamin who is beginning to display those "I'm inching out of childhood and into tween" characteristics:

Dear Benjamin,

I just wanted to let you know that your Dad and I are really proud of how hard you've been working lately. You've been really diligent about getting your homework done and earning money for your hedgehog. You've also been a really good helper with your sister. We love you a lot and appreciate the sweet spirit that you bring to our home and family.

Love you,


His response:

So does that mean you're raising my allowance?

When he gets his hedgehog, I want to meet it!

When did he get an email address? Dillon keeps asking for one, but I keep telling him "no". Does Benjamin email anyone? Also, I still vote for the hedgehog to be named Sonic, although Kelsey likes the name Lucky.

He got an email address last year, mostly to keep in touch with far away relatives. It's been nice to use it for us, too, though. Also, I log in and check it more often than he does, just to keep tabs on it...

You are all invited over to meet the Hedgehog once he arrives at home!

LOVE it!
