Dear Mom & Dad,
Things are going great here in The Belly! We're warm and cozy, if a little bit squeezed for space. At least we're never lonely! The food lately has been great!
We're thinking about you all out there, in the cold, and decided that we're staying where we are. We're starting work on a sub-basement! It's going to be great. We tried adding an attic, but kept running into bone or something. Hope you like it. We'll send pictures or something.
Hey, could you get mom to quit walking around so much? While the rocking motion is really nice, when the walls close in on us it makes it even tougher to do calisthenics!
Emma & Logan
P.S. Send more chocolate.
Dear Emma & Logan,
I'm really glad to hear that things are going well for you inside. I can feel your work on the basement but I've gotta tell you: you need to cut that out. There are only so many structural changes you can make to The Belly before it comes crashing down.
Glad to hear you're enjoying the food. Boy was I ever surprised to hear from the doctor just how much you liked the food! Perhaps you'd consider coming to visit soon and then you'll get more yummy things more directly. I mean, ice cream is great when broken down into it's component parts, but when you can taste it...it's even better! You should really consider this. Seriously.
Sorry about the walking, but a mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do. I can help you out on the chocolate issue, but you've gotta meet me halfway and stop construction. Consider it your first bribe!
P.S. If you don't come out of there in the next 7 days, I'm sending in a professional Spelunking Team to get you out. Don't think I'm bluffing, either. Ask Caitlin, she knows.
