Five Simple Things


November 14, 2011 by themommahen


Hatchling #1 loves books, loves reading, loves learning, loves school. This week’s class assignment was to make a list of five things they are thankful for. I loved listening to her as she did this with The Husband, her voice strong and her decisions quick about what was on her list. I hope she always is so sure of her priorities in her life, though I kind of hope “family” edges out “chickens.”

    We had this home work assignment too, love it! And, your daughter is a girl after my own heart. I probably would put food #1 on my list too 🙂

    Ha! Jen, did you notice that 3 of the 5 are food-related? They’ve spent time talking at school during their Thanksgiving food drive about how some boys and girls don’t have enough food to eat. I think she heard that message!

A little cold today. #brrr #beach I'm gonna Momma Hen you all for a minute with a gentle reminder that giving kids access to social media accounts -- whether theirs or yours, whether they're "old enough" or not -- without any guidance or oversight is not so different from letting your kid drive a car on the highway without any training. The damage may not be physical, and with a little luck there wont be any damage at all, but...images seen cannot be unseen, words said cannot be unsaid, things heard cannot be unheard. Birthdays are meant to be celebrated, even when it's back to school after an extended break. #12 My #snowbird. She loves this weather and she loves the Sunday comics. #SNOW! Excited kids, more than forecast! #ncweather #ncwx #snow
