The top 5 things kids are thankful for this Thanksgiving.

As November rolls on, Thanksgiving approaches, bringing with it an overflowing cornucopia of cherished traditions such as cheek pinching by older relatives and turning two-dimensional hand tracings into refrigerator-worthy turkeys. But the real meaning behind this most American of holidays is, of course, being thankful for all the blessings we too often take for granted.

So to help give kids some handy ideas on what to say when they’re asked what they’re thankful for this year, we present:

The top five things kids are most thankful for this Thanksgiving:

5. I am thankful for the internet for giving me a way to prove to my cousin that Kevin Bacon was not in Frozen.

4. I am thankful for my dog, whose willingness to eat anything allows me to make Brussels sprouts disappear without incident.

3. I am thankful for turkeys, not only because they taste delicious, but also because they are easy to draw, and they make adults take a nap for a change.

2. I am thankful for pilgrim hats because there’s something about having a belt buckle on a hat that makes absolutely no sense, and that’s just wonderful.

1. I am thankful for the new University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital opening in 2017, because as Iowa’s only nationally ranked children’s hospital, I know they can treat anything, maybe even my mom’s overcooked turkey.

Privacy advocates privately praise new children’s hospital in private.

In an age of smartphones, social media, and internet videos of people caught lip-syncing in their cars, privacy can seem like a lost relic of the past. But one children’s hospital in Iowa is trying to change that.

University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital started construction on their new state-of-the art, 14-story building in the fall of 2012. When the plans for the new hospital were only in the crayon stage, the designers saw an opportunity to make patients and their families more comfortable by making every single patient room in the hospital a private room.

Now parents can take a shower, snore while napping, and read bedtime stories to their children using their monster voices in complete privacy. To make the rooms just right, the planning team worked alongside patients and parents to help design the look and feel. The final outcome was large, private rooms with enough space for parents and siblings, beds for two parents to stay the night with their child, and large, insulated, windows to let in tons of natural light and for kids to press their heads against and make funny faces.

As Iowa’s only nationally ranked children’s hospital is set to open its new doors in early 2017, fans of privacy across Iowa surprisingly declined to be interviewed, but they all seemed very enthusiastic.
