Anyone who has raised children or hangs around them often knows that anything can happen once their little feet get moving.
Children are lovely because they haven’t developed social filters yet, giving rise to plenty of hilarious and embarrassing situations.
But perhaps the best thing about kids is their absolute honesty. They neither can nor want to hide their feelings. Everything comes out unfiltered. It is a sight to behold.
For nine-year-old Olivia, the school year had only been a few weeks long, thanks to the lockdown. But after spending the last five months at home playing with her mom, going back to school didn’t look very inviting.
The impending schoolwork inspired Olivia to write a fantastic letter to her mother about her feelings towards her first day of school, reports The Mirror.
“Don’t wake me up”
Olivia Joyce lives with her mother, Danielle, and the rest of her family in the UK. When the coronavirus paralyzed the world, Olivia had to stay home during the lockdown.
But when it was time to go back, Olivia seemed to be enjoying her new routine.
So when Danielle got up in the morning to wake her daughter up, she found a handwritten note on the kitchen table.
“Hi mom, it’s Olivia. I just wanted to tell you don’t wake me up I am really tired!
“Pls say to the office:
‘Hi, it’s Olivia’s mum she has a high temperature and she says she feels dizzy and sick.’
“Please at least I can spend some time with you 🙂
“I love you. Your lovely daughter Olivia,” the note said.
The internet relates to Olivia
Mother Danielle laughed out loud at her daughter’s heartwarming attempt to escape from school.
Danielle posted the adorable letter in a local Facebook group, where now thousands have seen it and laughed.
“This made me laugh this morning. You wouldn’t think she had just had 5 months off, would you? It didn’t work, and she is at school,” Danielle wrote next to the image.
The reactions were pretty cheerful.
“How can you say no to that?” joked a member.
“What a brilliant, funny kid I’d deffo give her the day off, pamper her like a princess and be super proud of her spirit lol,” wrote another.
