We’re very thankful…


What are you thankful for? I sat down with Clara the other afternoon and we talked about what it meant to be thankful and then wrote our brainstormed ideas about what she is thankful for on leaves. She had some great ideas. Friends. Yummy food. Nancy. Daddy. Blankets. Juice. Our house. Poop. Yes, I said poop. She got to the point of silliness and that was what came out. But how can you not be thankful for poop, really. I mean, if you didn’t it would be disastrous. Not to mention that it keeps Daddy employed. So we went with it.

Then we glued all of the leaves to a circle that was cut out of an old cereal box and then when it was dry I added a ribbon and hung it up. So everyone can see that we’re thankful for poop. And other very important things.

    And it gives her parents’ friends thesis topics! I’m thankful for it, too.

      I want you to know, also, that now whenever Clara flushes the toilet she proclaims, “Momma, the poop is going to the sewer!”

    This would be cool to do as a bulletin board. Make a tree trunk out of brown butcher paper and then add on the leaves…. I think I need to write this down for next year!
