Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I usually just keep it simple while still on theme, but we simply cannot celebrate and participate in Fall festivities this year. My anxiety won’t stand for it. But if there was any way to still enjoy it, then turning my living into a Harvest & Halloween Festival would be it. And that’s exactly what I did.
My daughter mentioned that all of my decorations were extra.
I mentioned that there will come a day where she’ll look back and appreciate how extra I made things today. How she and her siblings will go on and on in a group message thread and make each other laugh for hours.
She sarcastically remarked that I don’t know that will happen.
And I smiled and responded, “Of course you will. Because I do.”
Then she took a piece of candy from the pile.
