Picking up speed

Sunday, October 25, 2015

Our lawn is covered in leaves and we had hail and snow last week. How did the year go by so quickly?

Our kid got her learners driving permit on Saturday. How did the years fly by so swiftly?

I'm already starting to think of presents to send family for the holidays. It feels like each year has barely started and before I know it, it's time to prepare for the end-of-year holidays.

And Hallowe'en? We picked up three bags of candies this weekend. It's not enough, but it's a start. I never buy my favorites - it's just too dangerous! But I pick up candies that the hub and kid like, so that any leftovers will not be wasted. Last year we gave out 8 bags of candies. It's my favorite holiday of the year. So many happy and excited kids! And the tiniest of them are so adorable and fun to gush over.

    Very cute! Yes, Halloween is so fun for the kids. I just have to stay away from the candy!

    I totally agree with you that time is going by way too fast, and it really, really speeds up as I get older. Scary, isn't it?

    So you got the learner's permit? Did she drive home? How was it? Did you gasp and push the imaginary brake like my mother used to do (and I did, too, a few years ago with my son)? Or did you act like a real grownup in a way that I can't?

    I used to make a very big deal about Halloween when the children were small, but alas now that they're all grown up and somewhat dispersed, Halloween is no longer a thing at our house, as there's no trick or treating over here. Halloween is so fun for kids in the US, though, and you are kind to gush over all your little trick or treaters!

    I seldom give candy. I have given toothbrushes, plastic rings, pins with reading logos, pencils, stickers. The kids seem to enjoy things that are not candy.
    Smart to by candy you don't like. emoticon
