This is the time of year when every store seems to have their Christmas trees front and center flashing their LED lights. My 2 year old is entranced and awed by such a sight. I always have to remind myself to see the beauty of it from a 2 year old’s perspective instead of thinking of them as tacky and out of season.
Perhaps hoping to inspire my 2 year old to deeper contemplation in the shopping cart at Costco, I asked, “And who was born on Christmas?”
To which he responded confidently, “A pumpkin.”
Clearly we have some work to do this coming Advent!
