We are continuing with our Kids being Thankful posts that I started last week. If you miss that post you can check it out here. I decided this year that instead of doing the 30 days of Thankfulness myself I would turn the tables and have my kids do it. The simpleness of the things they are thankful for have really opened my eye’s to the world and what I really do have to be thankful for, 2 kids that don’t care about money or things but that they are safe and happy.
For Monday the princess was thankful for her play kitchen dishes and food. She is thankful that she can pretend to make food just like mommy.
Wednesday brought a lot of upset into our lives with me going back to work. I have been privileged to stay at home with my kids for the pasts 5 years but that came to an end this week and it was really hard on all of us. The firefighter was thankful for his snuggles the bear. It made him feel safe when he was scared of me not being with him.
Because our week got crazy with a new schedule we forgot to do this on Friday. Sometimes that happens, life happens. You get to the end of your day and question what you actually accomplished. Shake it off and look forward to a new day!
Saturday came in with quite calm. We actually slept in and just enjoyed a lazy day. I actually had time to make play doh for my kids. They both said that they were thankful that I had the time to make them something and it kept them busy for several minutes.
That brings us to Sunday. I decided that I wanted to do the thankfulness part of today. Something ware happened in my house today, both children took naps. Not the typical 30 minute naps, the 2 hr kind of naps! It was so nice and peaceful I couldn’t help but be thankful.
