And then the truth slaps you in the face

I talked about the “impending doom” on the horizon because Maddie started dotting her “i’s” with circles. Part of me hoped that maybe I was mistaken. Maybe circles for dots isn’t the sign for adolescence/teenage angst beginning after all. Maybe I was older when I used the circles for dots and this was just a fluke that she was using them at age 10. Then we unpacked our holiday stuff and,bam! There it is, plain as can be:


A plate I created when I was 10 with the tell tale marking present in the word Christmas. I did the smilie face derivation, but the indicators are all there that we are in for a heck of a roller coaster ride in the coming years. Bring out the egg nog. I’m going to need some extra holiday cheer….
