Being Thankful

I'm proud to present our guest poster of the day, The Pea. Her class had an open house (the kids invite their parents into the classroom and show off what they've been working on) recently, and a couple of Pea's works caught my eye . It looks like the class was working on cinquains (five line poems), and she chose her daddy and me as the lucky subjects.

Here are her poems (I've typed them out in case the photos are too small to read):



My mommy
loveable and careing
Walks me to school
As nice as a tender kitten (even)
If only she didn't get sooo angry.



My Daddy
works and care's for us.
In the offie all day
As grate as the best dad ever
If only he let me have moore chocolate.


She's such a sweet girl. It really makes parenting worth it when you know your kids are thankful for the things that you do. As for those last lines, well, I'm just thankful that she didn't write anything worse.

More chocolate? Yep, she's got her priorities right. :)

I've got family in mine too, but it's not the same.
