An Exchange of Emails

Renaissance Man was transferring files from his old email account to his new email account and found emails from Moe back in 2001! Moe was only 9 years old and I thought it would be fun to share a few of the emails that he exchanged with his dad:


Friday, May 11, 2001 8:20 PM
From: Moe

Subject: How you doing

Dear daddy,
HOW ARE YOU DOING!Hope you hade a great day.Daddy can you get me a Orange Soda and a chokolet cookie. Did I tell you that I LOVE you......... can we do the bating cages on Wed.

LOVE,
MO


From: DAD
Hi Champ,
Thanks for your email. I'm sorry I missed your email on Friday.
I had a great time with you on Saturday. It was allot of fun shopping for Mom...and thanks for your help in cleaning the house. I'm glad that you are feeling better.
If you are still up for it, we can do the batting cages on Wednesday. Let me know tonight.
Be sure to take your wind breaker when you go to practice. See you on the field.

Love you forever,
Dad - (Your biggest fan).


(Here's another email exchange between Moe and Renaissance Man a year later. Moe's spelling and grammar improved from the previous year!)

(The older Moe became, the email exchanges became fewer and fewer and now as a teenager, they don't exchange emails. Now they exchange texts! Moe and RM's relationship has definitely changed since 2002....their relationship is stronger.)

It is great that Moe and RM have a father/son relationship like that. That is awesome! Those emails are too cute. 2001 doesnt seem that long ago,, but gosh that was 8 years ago! times flies! you should print those and save them for moe and use them in a scrapbook or something.
