Last November, I started a new tradition. WCK and I decorate a big piece of poster board to look like a tree, and I write "We are thankful for ..." inside the tree trunk. Then every day from the first of November until Thanksgiving, Jay, WCK, and I write one thing we're thankful for on a construction-paper leaf and stick it to the tree. WCK has been doing a great job of thinking of things to be thankful for (except maybe for the one day she said "elephants"). Tonight, though, she said she was thankful for ... try to guess ...

Yeah. She's thankful for tapeworms.

When it was my turn, I said I was thankful "that we don't have tapeworms."

I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

Great! Good to be thankful for the small things (or not having small things).
