I can’t believe that Christmas is in a week. I know it’s cliché to say but I have no idea how it went by so fast.
I’m not sure if life has been going faster since I’ve had my two babies (my eldest started school in September! what?!) but it sure seems that way. This makes me think of when I was younger, all the “old people” would say things like “I’m young at heart” or “Don’t blink, before you know it you will be old like me”. I used to think it was just in their heads but now that I’m older, it’s in my head too.
Tomorrow is Lo’s last day of school before the Christmas break so I thought we could celebrate with Two-bite Chocolate Chip Cookies. They’re the perfect size for my 4 and 2 year old boys.
