At HelloU we love it when kids do funny things, and this letter here tickled us inside. An 8 year old boy went camping and sent his mum a letter home. She must have been overjoyed when it came through the post.

This is what the mother dreamed of receiving: 
 
Dear Mom, 
 
Thank you so much for letting me go to camp. I have learned so many amazing things, like how to take a fish off the hook, tie sailing knots, and even how to groom a horse. Thanks for packing the suncream. I’ve been out on the water a lot, so it has really come in handy. You sure do think of everything! Since it’s been so hot, I’ve been drinking tons of water! See? I really listen to all your good advice. The other boys here are really smart and nice. I’m making some lifelong friends I will cherish forever. We’ve had fun learning songs, playing cards, and catching frogs in our free time. During quiet time, I read the book you sent along. What a great story! And just because you’re my mum, I made a special gift for you in arts and crafts! I’m trying a lot of new foods, just like you suggested. You were right, the oatmeal at breakfast really isn’t bad when I add raisins. And don’t worry, Mom, I’ve been using all the manners you’ve taught me over the years. We are camping under the stars tonight. I hope to see fireflies. 
 
 I love you, W 
 xxoo P.S. Tell my brothers I miss them!
This wasn’t how it was to be, and instead she received this:
