A neurotic post about Thanksgiving

So, I had no intention of writing a cheesy Thanksgiving post detailing everything that I am thankful for - I mean, isn't it obvious?

But, then I started being all neurotic and thinking to myself, "what if Alice reads this post when she is older and doesn't realize how incredibly thankful I am for her." I know, its so obvious, it goes without saying, but I am thankful for my baby girl. I am ridiculously thankful for my little girl. I have never been more thankful for anything in my entire life. There is not a single thing about her that I am not thankful for - from her incessant giggling to her 4 am night screaming.

Every morning when I take her PJ's off and put on her socks, I kiss each foot (I know, ridiculously cheesy). I am thankful for each little toe.

Being a mom has also made me appreciate things and people that I probably overlooked or underestimated in the past. I could never have done this without my moms. It is true what people say - once you are a mother, you appreciate your parents so much more.

I also appreciate my husband in ways I never did before. He is so dedicated our family. He always puts us first. I would put up a sappy picture of him, but I think he would be mad that I had blown his cover - which is not really the reaction that I'm going for with this post - so another one of my photoshop marvels:I knew I shouldn't have started listing all the things that I am thankful for - now I feel obliged to list everything that I am thankful for. I don't want anyone to feel left out, but, on the other hand, I don't want this post to go on forever (and you probably don't want to read much more anyway) so, let me sum it up - I am thankful for all those special people in my life (you know who you are *wink, wink*)
