December 2017/January 2018 Issue

Letter From The Editor: December 2017/January 2018

Parents:

The holidays are upon us yet again. As soon as Halloween arrives, we all suddenly go into “hyper-drive” as the events, parties, school activities, gift-buying, visits from family, and decorating of November and December take priority.
 
This season, I encourage you to savoring each moment while your children are still small. Soon they’ll be older, and the bright shine of the holidays will begin to dull for them a bit as they mature (yep…it happens to most all of us). I think of this often as my oldest child is now applying for colleges, most of which are out-of-state. I keep realizing: this might be the last Thanksgiving and Christmas where he’s around to enjoy the full season. He’ll of course visit during Christmas break, but it just won’t be the same as having him here on the day we decorate the tree.
 
A childhood is a brief and precious thing. Don’t forget to drink it in while you still have time.
 
Happy Holidays!
