The little miss wrote this on Monday night before she went to bed. I thought that it was very sweet. Whenever my kids starts to complain for things, I always remind them of how lucky they are. They may not have all the material things that they want but they are blessed with people that love them dearly. When we are eating and they seem to ignore the food that they have, I would tell them that there are so many kids starving at the moment and would gladly take even just a bite of their food. Sometimes, real life situation is what you need to tell your kids to motivate them to do good things.
Inspired of what his sister have wrote, the little mister also tried to jot down his thoughts for Thanksgiving. He used the iPad in writing his notes.
Peer pressure is already setting in to these young minds. They tell us things that their classmates has and when they don't have it, I ask them if they need it and if they say "not really" that's when I tell them that it's the reason why we don't get it because they don't really need it. Having stuff is nice but sometimes it spoils kids and when they get used to it, it is hard to say no when they ask for something. Unless of course, if you have unlimited supply of resources. For an average family like ours, we need to prioritize the things that we really need and set aside the wants.
Anyway, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for being part of my virtual life! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
