I want to give daily thanks in honor of Thanksgiving this year. Instead of a new post each day, I will recap what I am thankful for at the end of the week. It is a great way to reflect on the little things in our daily life that we should be thankful for.
7 Days of Thanks Nov 8-14
This view from work. While I would rather be home with the kids, it is nice to have something pleasing to look out through my window.
Little Helpers. Baby Sid is such a messy eater that I am constantly sweeping up after him. Sometimes he likes to help. Actually he loves to use the swiffer on the floor.
Indoor play gyms. With the cold rainy weather that comes with fall, winter and spring here in the Pacific Northwest, it is great to have some place that the kids can run off excess energy.
Little Artist. The best thing about having toddlers is the stuff they make for you, or just make. I have always been a fan of handprint art work. Ian has been enjoying make handprint as well. So he asked to paint, and when I came back he was making his own handprint picture.
Cousins. I am close with my cousins and I love that my sister’s kids and mine are so close, even if they are seven years apart in age.
OMSI. The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry is a hands on learning museum. They have a toddler play area that brings fun and learning together. It is also great because the kids can play in different areas and I can watch them the whole time.
Brothers. Ian took it upon himself to read to his brother. I just love it.
