This weekend we also worked on gratitude. In this amazing neighborhood of ours, we have received a prepared dinner 3-4 nights a week since Zahra was born. (Often with a dessert!) The neighbors pop over, deliver a meal and meet the babe. It is wonderful. And requires a lot of thank you notes!
One special neighbor also offered a bag FULL of wooden cars for Zayd to enjoy since her kiddoes had outgrown them. I thought he would LIKE them but I had NO IDEA. We now have to take these cars everywhere with us in our Elmo backpack. The night he got them, we had to push bedtime back at least thirty minutes before we could separate him from his car sorting mission. Here he is the night they arrived on our doorstep:
The amount of time he spends on independent play has skyrocketed with the arrival of these cars. And it couldn't have come at a better time! (According to Zahra...)
To express our sincere gratitude, Zayd and I worked together on a thank you card this weekend for the nice neighbors and included a sheet of Batman stickers.
Then we just had to deliver it, unscathed!
I love this lentil and can't believe how he has grown. I'm so happy to have a record of Zayd's first thank you note.
