It’s Thursday again!!! Time to consider what you’re thankful for and link it in!
As I said in my originating post, I’m going to focus on being thankful for the age that Ali is at (in order to start that habit before her next birthday – the big T-W-O). So here’s mine:
We were eating our breakfast of shared pancakes the other day, and I ate my last one while she still had some on her tray.
Ali looked at my plate, troubled.
Ali: “Mommy’s cakes all gone”.
Me: “Yes, Mommy’s cakes all gone.”
Ali: “Ali’s cakes!!” (pointing at her own pancakes)
Me: “Yes, those are Ali’s cakes!!”
Ali: (looking back and forth): “Mommy’s cakes all gone. . . Ali’s cakes!. . . Mommy’s cakes all gone. . .Ali’s cakes!!. . .Mommy’s cakes all gone. . .”
The lightbulb goes off, and she picks up one of her pancakes and puts it in my mouth and says “Cake for Mommy!!”.
I do love this age.
I am so thankful that she is kind, generous, thoughtful, and more than willing to share. And, most importantly, that she hasn’t learned the word “MINE!!!!” yet!
What are you thankful for today?
Link it in using Mr. Linky if you want to write it on your blog, or leave it in a comment on this one!! I can’t wait to read what you are thankful for this week!
