It's autumn once again - my favorite time of the year. It's my daughter's favorite season, too. "Mom," she said. "I have a bucket list of things I'd like to do for fall."
"Okay," I said. "What's on it?"
"Carve a pumpkin, make apple pie, get a fall-scented candle, make a fall drink, make Halloween cupcakes and cookies, pick apples, make caramel apples, go on a hayride, have a Halloween party, and visit a haunted house."
"Hmmm," I said. "That's quite a list."
"Yeah, mom. So you'd better get started. Here's a list of ingredients and things you need to buy." She handed me a sheet of paper.
I looked at it and shook my head. Why do I have this suspicion that her bucket list is really a Mom To-Do list?
