Today was thank you note day. Bubba starts back to school tomorrow and, while I might take my sweet time, I am a woman who loves to write a thank you note and I want my children to share the value and experience the joy of expressing heartfelt gratitude.
So I told my son he WOULD write thank you notes today.
He was all for it. He really does love his Star Wars pop-up book and watching The Sword in the Stone with him last week was an experience I could charge admission for. I was not at all surprised to walk into the kitchen this afternoon and see that he had taken the initiative and started his letter to Aunt Brooke. I am also not surprised that he stopped halfway through to admire his penmanship and inform me that he has, “very very nice handwriting.” (I’m going to tell his teacher to stop encouraging him!)
