On the seventh day of Christmas, Ms. B gave to ME
On the seventh day of Christmas, Ms. B gave to me... a short silly story, and a Christmas number line activity!
So yesterday's post happened with only a freebie and no bonus writing from me. I didn't hear anyone complain, exactly, but you know, I noticed it.
This is a short and current story.
Today, my hunnybun was doing a photo shoot for a Christmas card. The family posed in front of a Christmas tree and the little boy, about three years old, smiled as children do when told to smile. After several minutes of trying to get everyone's eyes open, while looking in the same direction and displaying some sort of smile, a suitable picture was obtained.
While his parents waited for the pictures to be edited (read: photoshopped), the little boy went over to the candy bowl. It was full of little Hershey's chocolates. He asked his mother if he could have one.
"Yes," she said, "but say thank you first."
He turned quickly, shouted out, "THANK YOU FIRST!" and grabbed a chocolate from the bowl.
