The girls were super excited about the goodies, of course, but then one of them said, "Hey mom, your friend filled our bucket... for real!" And they were right, in both sense of the words.
I got to thinking about what a great idea this would make for the three 2 and 3 year old birthday girls I have to shop for over the next month- the book and a bucket filled with goodies. It's perfect!

All of my girls have been introduced to the concept of "bucket filling" through a school program based on the book Have You Filled a Bucket Today: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids by Carol McCloud. I love the concrete image the book (and program) gives children for the concepts of thoughtfulness, kindness, and selflessness. Through the years, I have used the term at home in our daily lives- pointing out things that "fill my bucket" or explaining how certain actions "tip my bucket over and spill it".
Yesterday, we received a package from my friend, Elexis.
