Flat Hatchlings

Hatchling #1’s class read Flat Stanley this year and they were instructed to make flat versions of themselves and send to a friend or relative to have their own adventures. H#1 knew she wanted her flat self to visit Chicago, and I knew that The Husband’s best friend and cousin (and best man at our wedding) and his wife were the ultimate people for this task. My first experience with flat people was about 15 years ago, when Uncle John pulled out a flat person at a Chicago Cubs game. I had no idea what he was doing, but we had a lot of fun with that little flat person that day, and it became the first of many flat people Uncle John would escort around the city, as his mailbox was a popular destination for his many flat nephews and nieces.

So, as you can see, Uncle John and Aunt Kathy did not disappoint. Here are just a few of the adventures the Flat Hatchlings (H#2 got in on the action with a flat version of himself too) had during their excursion to Chicago.

Walking in the snow So beautiful. But please let the power stay on. Morning chicken duty is always more fun when snow is falling. A little cold today. #brrr #beach I'm gonna Momma Hen you all for a minute with a gentle reminder that giving kids access to social media accounts -- whether theirs or yours, whether they're "old enough" or not -- without any guidance or oversight is not so different from letting your kid drive a car on the highway without any training. The damage may not be physical, and with a little luck there wont be any damage at all, but...images seen cannot be unseen, words said cannot be unsaid, things heard cannot be unheard.
