Fridge Wisdom: Holidays Edition

December 28, 2012 | By Brent Almond | LESSONS LEARNED

It’s been said many times (and yes, in many ways…) that Christmas goes by too damn fast. Not the “Holiday Season” itself, mind you. That’s an ever-expanding, multi-month period of excessive eating, spending and stress we could all do with a little less of. But December 25th comes and goes in an instant, so I find it beneficial to not only savor it while it’s here, but reflect on it afterwards. This is also helpful because I can never remember who gave me what.

Childhood, too, is known for speeding by much too quickly.

Case in point: I had this post planned for a couple of weeks, to showcase various holiday phrases JJ mispronounces in his cute toddler vernacular. But by the time I got around to hunting through all the letters and taking the photos, he’d already learned to say two of the phrases correctly. Slow down, buddy!

So yeah, I’m writing a Christmas-themed post after Christmas. And yup, JJ no longer mispronounces “Candy Canes” or “Merry Christmas” (He’s thankfully still working on his “th”s, so Frosty the Snowman’s refrain remains adorable). But I needed to write it all down before he races ahead to the next milestone ā€” and so I can savor this little morsel of Holiday sweetness a bit longer.

    This is almost as adorable as your Christmas card this year… He is growing up so FAST. It’s wonderful you are taking this time to save these precious memories so that he can enjoy them later. Truly wonderful!

      What book did your MIL get you? And I love “Pissmiss”! JJ also can’t say his “L”s and substitutes a “Y”. So “A lot of leaves” turns into “A yot of yeaves” šŸ™‚
