Thanksgiving morning I broke into my usual cheerful jingle “LET’S give thanks for allourblesssings for allourblessings for allourblesssings for LET’S givethanks for allourblessings. Lets. Give. Thaaaanks.”
And Kainoa was all, “I DON’T WANNA SING DAT SONG!”
And Maile just laid there watching the Macy’s Parade.
And Laina was all, “Mom? What’s your least favorite holiday??”
And I knew exactly what she was thinking and why she was asking that question, so I said, “Thanksgiving is my least favorite! Because you don’t get ANY presents!!!”
And all three kids gave a collective, “OMG RIGHT!?!?!”
I called my sister to tell her about these funny, greedy little creatures I’m raising and she answered the phone by singing a familiar cheerful jingle, “LET’S give thanks for allourblesssings for allourblessings for allourblesssings for LET’S give thanks for allourblessings for Lets. Give. Thaaaanks.”
Honestly I’m not sure why we ever moved away from each other.
