Y'all really just take the cake. I can't tell you how much fun I'm having reading through all your ideas on Works-For-Me Wednesday. It's about time we moms pulled together and shared our clever ideas! I'm finding myself spending much of my Thursday just catching up on your great pointers. If you haven't had a chance, go back and browse through these wonderful ideas, and in the process, I hope you discover some lovely new blogs. (And by the way, my eight year old Adam has suggested "Think Again Thursday", in which we all post bad decisions we made that we would like to do differently. Um, nice idea, but I'm not sure I want all my bad decisions posted for all eternity in cyberspace. Funny kid.)
I am so excited to report that my son Stephen got a response from Honda! It was a very kind, personal, age-appropriate letter. Here it is:
Dear Mr. X:
We are in receipt of your letter and thank you for taking the time to write. We are very pleased to hear that you are interested in becoming a car designer. We have many design engineers who work together as a team to create our cars.
At Honda, we try to listen to customers who like our cars, so we can understand what kind of cars they would like to see. [Note from Shannon: How about ones that run on Kool Aid?] We're glad that you shared your drawings with us.
We also believe that it is important to enjoy your work and we are happy that you have found what you would like to do. Having a goal like that allows one to enjoy the journey of learning and helps make the work and study that it takes much easier in the long run [Note from Shannon: Oh yes, and just what my boy needed to hear...thank you!].
We have made a record of your letter to us for future reference. We hope that after you earn your degree in design engineering that you will consider American Honda Motor Company as a possible employer. [Note from Shannon: How adorable is that? My little man is glowing.]
Thank you for taking the time to write us and if you have any other question or comments, please contact Honda Customer Service at 800-999-1009.
Brian Philbin, Automobile Customer Service

Are there any other people out there who are as obsessed with the show Lost as I am? And if so, did you see last night's episode? And if so, have you quit oh-my-gosh SHAKING yet? And if not, will you please discuss this with me because...oh my gosh! What an unbelievable episode!
