It’s the day after Thanksgiving even though nothing about yesterday felt like Thanksgiving and nothing about today feels like Black Friday.
The celebration was small – just me and my parents – not really for Covid reasons but for shrinking family reasons.
I did get to see the kids earlier in the day. Here’s the proof…
The big takeaway from the day, month, and the year is to just be thankful for the little things. I know people say that every year, but this year especially, it felt important to count my blessings.
Even the smallest of the small blessings.
OK, enough melancholy, here are the funniest parenting tweets and memes this week.
