Sometimes I struggle with my kids. Sometimes I wish we had unlimited funds for exciting things. Sometimes I dislike that the porch is pretty much falling off the rowhouse. Sometimes I see all the things that are wrong, from that crack over there to that tantrum Mushroom had.
But really, we are very lucky. We have plenty. We are healthy. We love each other. We are able to mostly live the way we chose to live. I’m blessed with wonderful children. I’m thankful for BalletBoy’s focus and easy going nature. I’m thankful for Mushroom’s passions and his ability to express himself. I’m thankful that they both have amazing imaginations. I’m thankful for the big table where we learn every day and where we’ll break bread for Thanksgiving.
