Me: What day is it tomorrow?
Me: Um no, not Sunday.
Me: What holiday is it?
Cordelia: Thanksgiving!!!(You may notice a lot of exclamation points, she was feeling exclamatory)
Me: Yes, and what is Thanksgiving?
Cordelia: It's where we give something to everybody who needs something.
Me: That's nice. What are we going to do to celebrate?
Cordelia: (Here she zoned out on a W related craft project that was sitting on the table) Well---a W, it goes up and down, up and down.
Me: What are we going to do to celebrate Thanksgiving?
Cordelia: We dress up!
Me: That's right. Do you remember who we're having dinner with?
Cordelia: Sadie!!! Sadie and the Wolfpack! (Here she begins chanting "Sadie and the Wolkfpack")
Me: Yes. Do you remember what we call it when we eat a lot of food?
Cordelia: Snack...um...uh...feast! Feast, fuh-fuh-fuh-fuh feast (she dances in her seat)!
Me: Will you help me make some food?
Cordelia: Yes momma, I will help you prepare some food.
Me: So... what kinds of things are you thankful for?
Cordelia: You and you (points to Eric)
Cordelia: What are you thankful for daddy?
Eric: My precious daughter (giving her a hug and a smooch).
Cordelia: Write that on my list. I am thankful for my daddy.
Me: Sweet. What other things are you thankful for?
Cordelia: Oranges, orange juice, pants, Elise, trees, a star, a cup, burritos, a plate, Bumblebee, Ophelia, Mia, and ME! I love my family. I love Grandma, Grandpa, Sam, Ben, Sara, the cats, Bode-----and my family who lives in another house.
Me: Happy Thanksgiving Cordelia.
Cordelia: Happy Thanksgiving.
I hope you have a thankful holiday tomorrow!
