Yes, we're in full Christmas mode here, but I thought I'd pause that a second and go back to last week. At Fletcher's school, his class had a list of what the kids were thankful for. There was a lot of "my family" "my house" or even "good food." Fletcher's contribution was "my stink bug." What? He doesn't even have a stink bug. That kid. So I tried at home to talk about what being thankful means and we started our own thankful list.
Rowan's thankful list was a little unorthodox, including "the girl on the refrigerator" and "my body." She has a magnetic paper doll on the fridge that she dresses up, for the record. But I think I got Fletcher understanding what we Should be truly thankful for. Even Papa participated! (F=Fletcher, R=Rowan, M=mama, P=papa). Fletcher does still insist he is thankful for his stink bug. And who doesn't feel thankful for cheese crackers???
