With Christmas upon us, I've been really busy. Buying presents, baking, and sending Christmas cards. I often miss something, and can't remember everything. I like to have my kids give their teachers a little gift. This year, I bought their teachers Apple Ornaments that I had personalized. As much as my kids say they want THIS for Christmas and they want THAT for Christmas, I was so surprised when my son this morning spoke up and said," What did you get for the nurses at school, Mom!" That made me feel really good, that he was thinking of them, and helped me to remember I'd almost forgotten them. So I ran over to Starbucks and got them gift certificates. I don't know how much of my ,"It's better to Give than Recieve" talk they listen too, but it was a refreshing change to hear him being so thoughtful.

GREAT example of PTT - your kids are definitely getting the message about "giving" vs. "receiving". Well done!

That's wonderful! I agree, kids can get so caught up in the me-me's this time of year. You must be dong a wonderful job being a good example for your kids through all the buy-ness of the Holidays, even though you might be too busy to realize it. :O)

It's so great to hear about kids thinking of others during the holiday season. Your son sounds like a very generous person!
