Driving in the car, my four-year-old daughter gazes out the window in the backseat. Excitment for the arrival of Christmas is building with each passing day, and Molly has been vigilant in keeping track.
“Is it 15 days until Christmas, Dad?”
“Yes,” I assure her.
To which she responds with matter of fact wisdom:
“It scares me how quickly the days are going.”
“Me too,” I say to myself. “Me too.”
