Thanksgiving is NEXT week! Are you ready?!

To get in the spirit of Thanksgiving, start talking about gratitude with your kids. For those of you who did my {Create a Thankful Heart} challenge, you know the BEST way I like to chat about things with my kids is to use children's books.

An amazing children's book is Thankful by Eileen Spinelli. Read it, chat about some things you are thankful for with your little ones, and report back here! I'll leave what my little intern was thankful for in the comments ;)

Comment below: What are your kids grateful for?! {The funnier, the better!}.

I know we're prepping for Halloween, so let's discuss my last trip to Target.

We went in for Halloween candy. The little interns and I talked about it on the way there. I parked the car and we repeated that this trip was ONLY for Halloween candy and for nothing else {it's also a nice reminder for me not to go through the dollar bins or down any unnecessary aisles!}. We talked about how the candy was for all of the trick-or-treaters that are coming to our house on Tuesday night. One more time: "What are we buying at Target?" "Halloween candy" ~say my 4 and 5 year olds.

Flash forward to the walk back from the candy. We pass the clothes.
~"Mommy can I get a Halloween shirt?"
~"No, we only came for candy."

Keep walking... you guessed it. Right past the toy aisle.
"But mommy remember you said we could get..."

I didn't even let him finish that sentence~ "WE CAME FOR HALLOWEEN CANDY AND WE ARE LEAVING WITH HALLOWEEN CANDY." This was my mantra for the afternoon.

Cue the tears. The meltdown. "But mommy I NEED that new pup." The screams. The stares from others. {Please tell me I'm not alone in these Target meltdowns!}. People don't know whether to help or run quickly in the other direction. I can answer that~ run... run, as fast as you can!

I usually would calmly explain that we are here for Halloween candy and leaving just with Halloween candy but it was after school, we were all exhausted, and it wasn't worth it. So I scooped up my 4 year old and we did self check out through the tantrums. We made it back to the safety of the van, where the sobs escalated and then finally stopped 2 minutes from home when he realized we weren't going back.

If this has ever happened to you, please leave a comment in this post! I think moms think we're alone in this, but I've seen it happen to lots of busy moms, and we're not alone. {At least that's what I told myself after Friday's trip!}.

In that meltdown moment, I decided to purposefully teach my kids how to be grateful for the pups they already have. For the clothes they have. For the candy we bought for trick-or-treaters. For everything we have.

If you're tired of the obsession with material things, the sense of entitlement, and just plain un-gratefulness, join me as I teach my little ones how to be thankful. It starts on Wednesday, November 1st. You know the teacher in me found some great books to share and lessons to use after this Target meltdown. Let's create thankful hearts together.

This weekend is such an awesome kick off to the holiday season!!! On top of decorating our house, I spent time with several families yesterday doing holiday photos. Today, I am off to the North Pole breakfast at NoVA PlayLabs with The Aviary Girls, Little Peeps Bows, and Creigh-ations to take pics with the big guy himself and then 9 more families this afternoon! Let the fun continue!!!
Kim, I'm so excited for our Thankful Kit! We started it today and I can tell already that this is going to be a fantastic activity for our family! I honestly can't say enough good things about it. There are so many different activities and not only can we easily spread these out over the month of November when we're specifically thinking about being thankful and grateful, but I hope these activities will start a new focus for our family that will become a regular habit. I personally always talk about how I'm going to start a gratitude journal or do more mindful activities with my child in these areas. Even though we talk about it, I honestly never sit down and do it in a truly meaningful way. This gives us an easy way to do that as a family. The quality of the materials is great. My child is only 5 and she was very excited to do the activities we've already started. The activity based around focusing on positives instead of negatives in each situation has already made a connection in her little brain after doing it just once. I was trimming her nails (which she hates BTW) and she was complaining and wouldn't sit still. Then she said you know, maybe I should think of this a different way, getting my nails trimmed is so annoying, but at least I won't have yucky nails and scratch myself and I'm happy I won't scratch baby Claire.
Play, Work or Dash isn't just a coworking space with onsite childcare, we are also a group of parents that support each other's endeavors in various ways. Including buying eco friendly reusable sandwich bags! Here are the first sales from our brand new Local Makers Market!
