Happy Canada Day!

Even though Hadley was born in the U.S. and will probably spend her entire life here, I try to make her aware of her Canadian roots. We celebrate both Canadian and American Thanksgivings. We sing the Canadian anthem. She waves the Calgary Flames flag that my parents bought Jamie (a.k.a. Mr. Avalanche) in jest. That same flag he once threatened to burn.

This morning, Haddie was going through her toy box and found a bear bell with a Canadian flag on it. She started ringing it.

Jamie: Haddie, that’s Mommy’s Canadian bell! Can you wish her a Happy Canada Day?
Haddie: NO!!
Jamie [to me]: I guess our little Half Breed is more 60:40 American….
