Tomorrow the birthday fairy (some junk I made up) visits our house. Each morning until his birthday, The Child will search for a stuffed Totoro. Most days Totoro will prompt us to do something kind. I stole the kindness bit from a blogger who made up The Kindness Elves.
We sketch out a rough calendar of daily prompts.
Some days we just do family things, and we’ll talk about a way to be kind when we’re out and about. But the day he has a 3-hour allergist appointment? That day is straight-up: let’s eat donuts for lunch.
