Another milestone she is hitting: laughing at her mama! Melts my heart when I see her smile her gigantic smile because of something I did. Enjoy some Harper smiles!
At work we are focusing on teaching the children about kindness. Everytime a teacher sees a child being kind they are writing it on a star and we are posting it in the front lobby on our Kindness Meter. Simple things from helping a friend zip her coat, picking up more toys than asked, or helping hand out snack. This is important and I can't wait to teacher Harper about being kind and giving back. The holiday season always brings out the best in people but we should be kind year round. What kind acts have you done lately?
I have donated food to our food drive at school, donated mittens to our mitten tree at school, bought a gift off of the giving tree at church, and even put money in those red kettles that are everywhere this time of year.
I'm trying to be kind but I'm also trying out a theory. That good things happen to good people. I believe this theory but this is the first time that I am really putting it to the test. Harper is a good girl. Sometimes I think she's too good to be true. I mean she sleeps through the night 99% of the time and she is happy about 99% of the time. I am lucky. She is a good girl and Andy and I are good people so the good has to continue. But of course it doesn't hurt that I'm trying to be extra good this season right? So dear God, Santa, St. Nick, and anyone else who can pull some strings....remember on Jan 4th that Harper is a good kind girl.
