Here are my philosophical thoughts for the morning: we celebrate thanksgiving with gluttony, and follow it with greed on Black Friday. How many deadly sins can Americans fit into one week? It's discouraging. I want to be intentional about teaching my children that we have enough, in fact much much more than we truly need.

I don't think that explaining the religious component of holidays is working out so well. I told the girls that Christmas is a day to celebrate Jesus' birthday, and now Juliet has been talking all day about planning a surprise birthday party for Jesus and jumping out of the closet to yell "Surprise!" when he walks through the door :)

Juliet: "What's that mean, mommy?"
Me: "It means that something really happened, instead of it being pretend."
Juliet: "Like poo poo. And bikes. And scooters. And rainbows. Right, mom?"
Me: "Ummm, I guess?"
