This morning as husband and I started into our conversation with D as to why there is no school, D interrupts, "I know why, it's Martin Luther King's birthday. Mommy you should make him a cake, a chocolate cake. Or maybe carrot muffins." How could I refuse!
In any case, I was pleased that D had a jump start to our discussion around MLK. He's formulating thoughts and expressing how he would like to be a "kind and brave" person like MLK. Although impossible for him to comprehend, we listened to MLK's I Have a Dream speech, very apropos given tomorrow's historical event.
Onward & Upward,
