jar of hearts

February is as good a time as any to encourage good deeds and random, small, sometimes planned acts of kindness within the family.

If we get 100 hearts in the jar by the end of the month, we get to treat ourselves to a treat out on the town (or down the street).

Some things we’ve done:

Elsa helped Oliver finish his dinner.

Simon held the door for everyone at the train station.

Oliver held my bag while I tied Elsa in the carrier.

I carried both Oliver and Elsa across the street to the train station.

Dad helped tie the notes on all the Valentines.

So, yeah. Little things like that. And when March begins, we’ll empty the jar and start all over. We’re hoping to make some habits here.
