Will's turning 20 on Saturday. He can't come home, so we sent him a package. And of course, we planned on calling him on Saturday. But today, he asked if we could drive up on Saturday and have lunch with him. I said, "Yes....I don't see why not. I'll talk to Daddy and make sure."
And then he asked if we could bring Sadie.
And I said, "No."
But he said, "I miss her."
I said, "Look at a picture of her. I'm not bringing her."
And then I said, "I wish I would have known we were going to come up there
and see you and I wouldn't have mailed your package."
And he said, "No, I love getting mail."
I love October. Our wedding anniversary is in October and
our 3rd and last child was born in October.
And it's a great weather month.
It's hard to be in a bad mood in a month that ends with "all you can eat candy."
October....20 years ago.
This is my mother holding newborn baby Will. It was a tradition to have chili and cornbread for supper on Halloween .... before the kids went out to Trick or Treat. My parents and sister's family would all come over....everyone dressed up or at the very least in a Halloween t-shirt.
No one went to bed until they sorted their candy and ate at least some of it.
Time flies whether you're having fun or not. Might as well have fun.
