Txting Lttrs 2 Cmp

Sometimes, to do something different, sometimes you have to do something less. Less typing, less writing – i.e., fewer letters. As in fewer alphabet letters.

Abbreviations can be a god-send for parents with way too much to share in just one page (that’s the limit at our camp). And kids love the texting abbreviations they use with their friends too. Not that they’ll want to share with you.  But they may get a kick out of an abbreviated email from you. Or not. But you won’t know until you try… WTG (way to go)!

Check out the sample letter (with translation) below:

The Letter

The  Translation

Dear Daughter,

What’s up?  We’re having a good summer so far in my humble opinion – even though it’s lonely without you.  What about you?  How is camp?  Are you having fun meeting new kids?  What’s your favorite activity?

On a totally unrelated subject, Sparky the dog was chasing his tail last night and it was so funny Dad and I were rolling on the floor laughing. Laugh-out-loud, it was funny!  So far, so good with his potty training – no mess yet. Laughing out loud!

By the way, I don’t know about you, but I don’t care if I ever have turnips again because they are gross!  Just kidding – as if I’d ever ever eat turnips!

Just to let you know, Dad and I are going on a trip to NYC next week to see what it’s like to be in a small city.  Oh my god I am so funny.  No matter, that was lame.  Whatever… Anywho, we’ve got to go, so I’ll say bye bye.  But I still love you.

See you, er see you later

We love you. Talk to you later

XOXOXOX

Mom

B4 I forget – way to go on winning the swim meet!
