The first day of fall for 2009 (in the Northern Hemisphere) was September 22nd. Ever since Miranda learned that little nugget of information in Kindergarten, she has constantly asked me (every day since September 22), “Is it Fall yet? Why is it so hot?” All I could say was, “Yes, it’s fall but it still feels like summer. I guess the sun is just having too much fun to cool things down.” I don’t know why she has been so persistent. Was she excited about Halloween? Going to the pumpkin patch? I don’t know.
On the first day when the weather looked cloudy and cold, she asked me again, “Is it fall yet, Mommy?”
“Yes, it looks like it.”
“Yay! I can wear my favorite sweater!”
It figures. It would be fashion-related coming from my little girl. (sigh!)
