It will be my greatest legacy.
There are days that I think the Yoys have no hope. They bark orders at me. There isn't a please or thank you to be uttered. It's disheartening.
Other days, it comes organically and my smile is as wide as the ocean.
Today's life lesson for Big E was the thank you note. Up until now, I've authored his thank you notes. But now that he is six and has semi-legible handwriting, I've turned it over to him.
Big E has seven thank you notes to write.
In the three hours since I suggested he write thank yous, he's made it through two. And it was painful. He requested a snack break after note one. Hopefully, he can get the remaining five buttoned up by the time his birthday rolls around again in 2015.
His notes also come with artwork.
