Ok this one I am really proud of friends. Not because I came up with it, but because Audrey did. Her Klutz task of the day was to make a list to send to Santa of some kindness ideas for the rest of the month. Basically, as we were heading down the road of her thinking about toys and gifts for Christmas, we wanted to make sure that it wasn't just a list of toys on her brain. So, in addition to the more traditional Santa list, she had to make a list of some of the things she was going to do for others...
She came up with the idea to ask people "How they are feeling". My mom heart immediately melted as she wrote it down on her paper. The emotion advocate in me shouted for joy internally. This is music to my ears.
On her paper she wrote: "the how are you feeling challenge" or really how are you feeling chalichg in what we call her "kid writing". The idea is she is going to pick a person to ask this question to each day. Most especially her friends or teachers at school since the challenge she wanted to do right before this was the "hug challenge". But we got talking about how while we are happy to take on that challenge as we will be the ones to reap the rewards, she can't really hug anyone else right now...though she did make it a point to say "well Mom, I have to hug the most important person, myself".
So tonight, Klutz is basically out of a job. As I sat down to write his letter, I realized that I couldn't do much better than what she already came up with, so instead I am going to empower her own idea. Have her be seen and heard by her beloved elf and hopefully back up the truth that she is filled with incredible thoughts and ideas to be put into action.
