This is when you know you're really nailing it as a parent.
Thanksgiving morning Logan was sitting on the couch in his costume du jour watching Mickey Mouse Club House.
"Hey Logan!" I exclaimed. "Since today is Thanksgiving let's talk about what you're thankful for. I'm thankful for you and Everett and daddy, I'm thankful we're all healthy..."
He looked over at me and without missing a beat replied, "I'm thankful for my shows," and immediately shifted his eyes back to Mickey Mouse.
Or how about when we set up the Little People Nativity in his bedroom the other night? Ready to engage in a meaningful and heart warming conversation about the birth of Christ I asked him, "Logan... do you know remember why we celebrate Christmas?"
"Is it about getting presents or something else...?" I gently prodded.
"Um, it's just about getting presents."
"But whose birthday is it??"
"MINE! December 20th, when it's almost Christmas, it's my birthday!"
"But whose birthday do we celebrate ON Christmas?" I tried again desperately. "Baaaaaby......"
"....Baaaaaaby.... BABY EVERETT!" he exclaimed with such gusto and conviction that you might have been tempted to believe him for just a second.
So obviously, Nick and I are really instilling deep values and lasting lessons in our childrens' hearts. We should feel proud for sure.
Did you have a good Thanksgiving break? Ours was cold and rainy, and we spent a lot of time not doing much of anything!
On Friday morning we were all hanging out in our pj's being lazy, and Hattie came over to join the fun. They played play dough, created a band, ate chicken nuggets, and dressed up in costumes.
