This made me LOL.
Can I borrow some money so we can move into an apartment and buy a new Mustang convertible? I don’t mean to waste money. I will use some of the money to buy a drum set and have a cool pool. Can I have $10,000 to buy my passport to go to Las Vegas? Send me a picture of the White House and the statue of Abraham Lincoln.

How excited do you think Little Luis will be when he finds out he can get to Vegas for way less than $10,000 and he doesn’t even need a passport?
Dear Obama family,
I am going to be in the second grade. Do you get a lot of threats? I have nine rooms in my house. I would like to be the first woman to become president. Our dads know each other.

Talk about a non sequitur, Mikaela. “I am seven. Do a lot of people try to murder you?”
Dear Michelle Obama,
Please bring me scary stories like the ones my second-grade teacher has. For example, a book full of scary stories that are very, very scary. Bring me a thing to put my books in because I have a lot of books and they are too heavy in my backpack. Please bring me a cute fish too, like the ones in “Finding Nemo.”

I think Juan is confusing the First Lady with Santa.
I freaking love kids.
If you’re not smiling yet, reread.
