Those trees though! Guys, this month. I don’t even know what to say about it. On a positive note it’s a beautiful month, the reds, and oranges, and yellows. There have been vivid color explosions in my house. Mostly relating to Scarlet’s moods. You don’t name a child Scarlet and not expect some colorful moods, right? I always feel like such a failure when my children aren’t stable, predictable, obedient robots. I have to take a deep breath and remember that they are living, evolving, vividly colorful humans and I have to teach them how to control certain aspects of their personalities, while helping others to flourish and grow. It’s hard work, but we don’t give birth to humans to half ass their upbringing. Right? Right. So, cut yourself a break this week. Make sure they know they’re loved, and also that they know how to show love. And maybe buy yourself a burgundy sweater, because every time I wear burgundy I feel like a fall fairy.
