“I am thankful for orange juice”.
That was what M-Woww added to our Thankful turkey last year. She was three years old at the time, but luckily this year she mentioned family before naming her favorite drink.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of the year to reflect and model for our children all our family’s blessings.
My children are still young so we spend most of November talking about what thankful and gratitude means to us.
