On Thursday morning, Mo ran into my bedroom, "Happy Thanksgiving!"
"Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Sweetie," I replied.
"I love Happy Thanksgiving," he said.
"I do, too. Why do you love Thanksgiving?" I asked.
Mo's an outspoken vegetarian, so I was a bit surprised to hear him so excited about a holiday sometimes called Turkey Day. But I thought perhaps he was excited to see our extended family or he liked the idea of giving thanks (the reasons I like Thanksgiving).
"Because, Mom," he explained, "Happy Thanksgiving has candy in it."
