October Is The New December
We had nine trips to the doctor, two to the dentist, and three to the pharmacy. Two Fall Festivals, two class parties, and one Trunk-or-Treat event. Four occasions for which the children were expected to be in costume, and that is not counting Halloween on Sunday. Two separate cookie dough fund raisers, and two different picture days, for two different schools. Two food drives, two raffles, and two parties for which donations were given (and willing, too, but they added to the chaos). Two field trips, one I chaperoned. Two days as class mom. Two parent teacher conferences; one for good, one for evil. One letter from the Washington State Bar Examiners (he passed!!). One date night. One Church Fellowship Dessert. And, one Wild Thing named Etsio, (that's him in the picture) hand made by Jonah.
So, to you, Holiday Season, I say, "Bring it!" You don't scare me. I lived through October.
