At Least I’m Appreciated For Something

Mira’s kindergarten class has been practicing the art of writing letters. They’ve mostly been working on the “hey, how are you?” type letters, but it has been mentioned that they can write thank you notes, too.

We’ve also tried to teach our kids the importance of saying thank you and being grateful when someone gives you something or does something helpful for you.

So I shouldn’t have been surprised when Mira proudly presented me with a thank you note. She admitted she got help from daddy on spelling some of the words, and help in taping it back together when it ripped as she pulled it out of her notebook. But the sentiment? All hers.

Mira's note to meI’m the blue person on the left, Mira is the pink one in the middle – her marker was drying up and it got fuzzy.

Of all of the things she could think of to thank me for, she chose taxes. I’m really not sure what to say to that.

  3. I think this is sweet. It never ceases to amaze me what kids come up with.

  4. Y’all, I would thank someone else a lot for doing my family’s taxes. She has very keen insight about how onerous it is.
