Season. We are well into the Christmas season.
With that comes the lists from my children. My oldest is now eight, and the seasons are changing for him, too. It used to be that he was a bit oblivious of the times and seasons, and now it's a big deal for him. He recently has begun counting down to his birthday, and Christmas, and other occasions when he might get stuff.
It's so important to him. I miss the seasons when it was easier to surprise him. Times were simpler when he was younger.
My six year old is still in that season of simplicity. My three year old is coming into the season where he is aware of different occasions. And the baby? Everything is new for her!
Seasons are about change. For children and for mothers.
