Aren’t you glad you had fellow pilgrims to sit with, no matter what table you were destined to dine during Thanksgiving?
Topics often covered during the meal at our kid’s table included knuckle sandwiches (usually whether or not I wanted one to which my response was, “No thank you I’ve already had one”), my sister announcing for the umpteenth year in a row she was thankful for her “Gaggy” (in non-toddler speak, that means dad although she couldn’t enunciate the “d” sound which made her declaration all the more nauseating for those of us who understood) and who was going to get a Jell-O knox block (this was obviously long before we started adding vodka to this delicatessen) for dessert first.
So while Thanksgiving is a holiday for appreciation, I’m thankful for my fellow pilgrims who weathered the children’s table with me at every family gathering…still to this day.
Hope you enjoy the seat at your table, wherever it may be.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
