For the first time in over fifteen years my advent calendar is not sporting Hershey Kisses. This year we've turned it over to Emma. It now sports Smarties. She likes Smarties and I've decided they're the perfect candy for her because she gets a whole bunch at once and they don't melt all over place. The years of sharing the Hershey Kisses with M, him taking the odd days and me taking the even days, are over. Somehow it doesn't even seem sad.
