Thankssticking

Today was Manda's preschool Thanksgiving party. They had a fruit salad that they all helped to make, and then the parents came to hear their little "program." The kids sang a couple of turkey and pilgrim songs, and then the teacher asked each child one at a time what they were thankful for. They all said things like "my house" "my mom and dad" "my friends" - - etc, and then it was Manda's turn.

Teacher - "Amanda, what are you thankful for?"
Manda - "My chapstick."

Have I completely failed as a parent?

That is hilarious... that is honestly the thing Kiah would say she was thanful for too. She is absolutly obsessed with chapstick or aka "lipstick"! They will get along :)
