Carly to get older.
But only for one reason- Girl Scout Cookies.
I live in the land of large families; in a state with, most likely, the MOST 8-year-old girls per capita. But somehow I don't know a single Girl Scout.
How can this be?!
I don't know.
And usually I don't think about or care that I don't have any 8-year-old girls in my social circle. Except for today. When I've got a terrible craving for Girl Scout Cookies, and I realize that cookie season has come and gone, and no one showed up at my door soliciting. And then I nearly tear up, because how could I have missed yet another cookie season? How did I not work harder to make 8-year-old friends this last year? I had these same feelings of regret last March!
And, I mean, it's not just my loss. It's really a loss for the Girl Scouts of America too. Did any of you sell cookies? Do you remember those color coded order forms?
Someday, I'll be that cookie coordinator mom. I can't wait.
