Dear Family (and friends),
Today he was thrilled to open the mailbox and hear that the green envelope it contained was addressed to the whole family and that he could open it. (I had actually opened the mailbox previously, opened all the mail - including the green envelope - removed "parental mail", then scotched this particular envelope up again and replaced it in the mailbox for him to discover later...)
William is very curious. He particularly likes to know how things work. One of his favorite books is about where the contents of his lunch box actually comes from.
Recently he has asked me several times to explain how mail gets to us -and of course the post-cards we send to you (and sometimes to ourselves, now you know why...). He knows about the post office, the conveyer belts and computer-like machines that read addresses, the planes/trains, the bags of mail, the post-men (who don't wear any kind of uniform here in Greece) and now he expects mail to be delivered to him. Every day. Quite naturally.
So here is a special request: Please send William mail. A post-card, a parcel, a picture in an envelope, a penny or a dried flower on a card... whatever fancy you may have. He will be over the moon to hear it is for him and will treasure opening it!
(oh and of course Emma, as any self-respecting sibling, will inevitably be jealous so please send her something too!!! this would be perfect! In fact I might just try it out!!! )
