I promise I'm not slacking on my commitment to my 30 Acts of Kindness! Just slacking on the blogging side of it. This is truly a challenge, but I am still enjoying coming up with helpful, unselfish ideas as well as ways to include Liam.
Day 12: Surprise coffees to two hard working women in my life
Do not underestimate the power of a Pumpkin Spice Latte. My sister, Chloe loves them and has been raving about them since the beginning of fall. I only recently tried one and I'm sold. Chloe was in between soccer games and could certainly use the boost, and my friend Chantal was tirelessly planning an amazing birthday party for her son Avery. I got nothing but hugs and smiles for this act:)
Day 13: Free babysitting
Liam and I were out walking around the neighborhood and we came across little Frankie and her cousin Sophia. Liam was dying for a play date and it just so happened that Sophia's mom had to run out to chauffeur her son between practices. I was more than happy to sit with the girls as they made jewelry out of grass and twigs:) It's pretty interesting to see Liam interact with girls, especially girls who are a little older- and very pretty.
Day 14: Letters to the troops
There really is no amount of thanks that could express our gratitude to the men and women who serve our country. This is not a place for politics, and whether or not you support the war efforts you cannot deny giving thanks to troops overseas. These people miss holidays, birthdays, weddings, soccer games, and family dinners. I cannot imagine the sadness many of them must feel as the holidays approach. A few drawings and a warm note of thanks are the least we can do. Liam was pretty awesome at drawing snow men and decorating trees with markers. I think he enjoyed this one.
Day 15: Bringing Chloe's car for some serious cleaning
My sister's car was FULL of grass. Grass from soccer games AND kick ball. Yes, she is on a kick ball team. And we love her for it! Chloe's birthday was just a few days ago and I thought this would be a nice gift as well. Nothing like driving a super clean car.
