Tonight I caved —  waaay before schedule. I let Emma watch Charlie Brown Christmas:

And despite the fact it’s only November 2nd, and despite the fact today was a crappy Saturday of errands and housework and catching-up-on-everything-I-miss-during-the-work-week, it was worth hearing her giggle during the movie.

These days I have a hard time finding gratitude, and tonight, in between clips of Snoopy and handfuls of Hallowe’en candy, I found a glimpse.
