I love Thanksgiving because you get to:
1. Reflect on the things you are thankful for
2. Stuff your face
Number 2 has been accomplished, so here is number 1:
The Things I’m Thankful For
My dustbuster; because you make me feel sane in a sea of crazies. Organic food pouches; because you make me feel like a good Mom while buying me some carseat time. Take N Toss; because you are so inexpensive and easy, I never feel guilty when I forgo cleaning you to throw you away instead.
Do you use Take N Toss products? Tell me what your thankful for on my Facebook page for a chance to win this set, courtesy of THE FIRST YEARS:)
My 7pm glass of Copertino wine; because you allow me to type things to strangers that I wouldn’t dare tell a shrink. Miss P’s naptime; because you give me the energy and recharge to enter the second half of the day with as much enthusiasm as the first. My Quinny stroller; because you make me look like “a cool mom” not a “regular mom.” Diapers.com; because, like Lindsay Lohan, you are fast, easy, and offer it all.
The People I’m Thankful For:
You. Thank you for reading without judgement. Thank you for your support and encouragement to keep writing. Thank you for sharing my stories and then sharing your own. Thank you for your laughter, and for some of you, thank you for your tears.
My little sister. She had the courage to start a food blog and encouraged me to start a “Mommy” blog. Thank you for the motivation and for the idea. I can’t wait to see you walk down the aisle this summer.
My big sister. Who reads my posts before they go live and in the most supportive way possible tells me exactly what I need to hear. Thank you for knowing me so well. Thank you for being my support system.
My mother, “Vovo”. Who has given her whole life to her family. It took me having my own child to truly appreciate everything you’ve done for us. I don’t know what I’d do without your love and guidance.
My father. Who worked his whole life to provide the perfect one for his three daughters. It worked, Daddy. Happy Retirement.
My husband. Who gives his undying support to everything I throw myself into. Thank you for making my dreams come to life.
And for my daughter, Little Miss Paigely Baker Quinn. You inspire me. You fill my heart with love. You are everything I ever wanted and more. I would trade any possession in the world for your high fives and wet kisses.
