Holiday Homework – Thankful Thursday

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving.

If you ask my niece and nephews why I am a horrible aunt, they will tell you many things, but right now my eldest nephew will mostly say it’s because I make him do holiday homework on national holidays.

I’m grateful for that homework, though, because it gives them┬ásomething else to do when on some days they just stare at the ceiling because all of their friends are gone and they’ve all already used up their electronic time.

That and it’s good to keep that knowledge near the front of their heads so it’s ┬ánot such a big culture shock when they get back to school.

Check our the original Thankful Thursday.

Confusing Lyrics – Ramble-y Reminiscence 4

What a laugh it would have been, if Daddy had only seen Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night!

Spent most of my childhood thinking this song was a prelude to a long divorce process.

And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again…

I wondered why it would matter to ‘Mom and Dad’ to want school to start again. Mine had work during the holidays and my elder siblings were the ones who watched us during Winter Break and counted down the days ’til it was over.

I didn’t understand it then, but I understand it now…

There are a lot of different songs that made no sense to me until I was an adult.

What are your family’s holiday traditions?

Does switching which parent’s house we’re at each year count?
