The mornings are getting cooler now.
It’s that time of year when we say goodbye to summer’s memories and turn our attentions to the return of autumn in all her autumnal splendor. And that can mean a lot of things, I guess, but one thing it definitely means is that it’s pumpkin time!
Parents of little kids are quick to return to pumpkins even if they had forgotten about them in all the years that have come and gone since they were young. It’s just a natural progression, really. We have that first baby, fall comes around, we see pumpkins showing up at the grocery store or out in the fields, and we just want to get our kiddo out there in the middle of a bunch of them.
It’s almost like Mother Earth is poking us after a long hiatus, saying,”Hey, don’t forget I’ve got something big and bright and awesome over here, you know??!!”
So it begins. We start a new love affair with the ‘Big Squash’ thanks to our kids, because, let’s face it, kids love pumpkins.
And kids are never wrong.
