We are in full on holiday mode around here. Quinn had her holiday concert on Monday and tonight we had Gavin’s choir and band concert. Can I tell you something that my kids don’t know? Their concerts make me super emotional. I don’t know why! I don’t want to be the weird mom who is silently sobbing while their child is singing “Over the river and through the woods” off key with 100 other 7 year olds . . . . but I kind of am!
Or it could be that the holidays are just making me super emotional. The fact that I ate like 7 of these no bake chocolate peanut butter cookies without blinking might be supporting evidence.
