I received a letter in the mail yesterday from my 5-year-old nephew. He wrote "TOM" on the front of the envelope, with the other parts filled in by his mom. She wrote a note on the back:

Hi Tom -
I have no idea what is in here. It's all him. He even stole
a stamp from upstairs and brought the envelope to us.

He signed his name on the back, and stamped the return address a few places as well. Needless to say, I was excited to receive this envelope. I was even more excited when I saw what was inside:

my nephew's drawing

I believe that's me on the right. (Now is probably the right time to reveal that my superpower is sonar.) I couldn't be prouder right now -- not just because I'm uncle to such a talented artist, but because I'm pretty sure I'm the first person to receive mail from him.
