Better Mom Day 4: Thank You (also Doily and Burlap Banner)

I made my own version of the ever-popular doily banner a few weeks ago for a baby shower at my house.  I loved that it was so easy!  I just cut strips of burlap (which makes a huge hairy mess on the table by the way) and glued doilies (cut in half) across the bottom.  And that's about as detailed as the tutorial needs to be.

If you're new to the 31 day series, over 1200 bloggers have chosen a theme they want to write about every day in October ranging from food or fashion to faith or fabric.  See the whole list atThe Nester.  I decided to focus on trying to be a better mom, and you can see my first post here.

Day 4: Say Thank You

With yesterday's intent to say "please" more often, I've been trying to say "thank you" more today.  I especially looked for opportunities to thank them when they have done something I didn't ask them to.  It will let them know I'm paying attention, and remind me what great kids I have.
