A conversation I just had with my kids:
Alex: Mom, what's that?
Me: It's a [crochet project of the moment]. When it's finished, it's going to be a Christmas present for [redacted].
Alex: But it's not even Christmas yet!
Me: No, but I'm making crochet presents for several people this year, and making things takes time. I'm starting early to make sure I can get them all done in time.
Penny: That's weird.
Me: Planning ahead is weird?
Penny: Pretty much, yeah.
