It is that time of year, the time of insanity where even the most normal human being becomes a shopping fiend. Must find the popular toy! Must get the best deal! It is also another time of the year, the time to reflect and teach lessons to our children. Lili's preschool fills shoe boxes with presents for unprivileged children around the world.
This year we did 2 boxes, for a little boy and 1 for a little girl. Me and Lili went to the local dollar store, and Lili was able to choose gifts that she thought each child would like. I also used this as a opportunity to explain to her why it is important to help others and that she is a very lucky girl to have what she does. In total her small school sent off 28 boxes! Remember the holidays are about more than just gifts!
