2-4-6-8! Who do we ap-pre-ciate?

Our kids' school is doing a fundraiser today to help kids with cancer. If they pay $2, they can wear pajamas to school for the day.

So of course...all of our kids wanted to 'help' with this noble endeavor.

As they were putting on their coats to leave for school, Katie came up to me and said,
"Thanks for getting me these pajamas for Christmas. I really love them!"

As I was about to say, "You're welcome," she continued....

"I really appreciate dat."

Jeff and I got a big ol' warm feeling and smiled at each other...thinking we had the most amazing child on the planet.

A few seconds later she looked up at me and said,
"What does appreciate mean?"

Got to love her honesty. Super duper sweet none-the-less.

Happy Friday, Karin!

Angie said...

humbling, isn't it? But I love the idea of a jammie day. Maybe I'll try one at home!

She's so cute she will get away with stuff like that when she's 20!

Well, it was a good moment even though it didn't last long!

I will be laughing thru the night with this one!!

Thanks for the smile!!

Oh my word. That's hilarious. Well, it's apparent that she's heard that word MANY times and knew how to use it, so...good job, Mom!

No Excuses Mom said...

So funny! But what a sweet girl! (and what a fun fundraiser from the school!)

love that she used the word appreciate appropriately in a sentence before letting you know she didn't know what it meant (a little coaching from older siblings methinks)!? But hey she tried and she's honest and she got to wear those jammies to school!
