Because motherhood will never be a perfect science

Happy Holidays!

on December 22, 2012

Happy holidays everyone!

Hopefully you haven’t spent too much money on senseless gifts for your little ones. This season should be about quality time spent with your family.

Blah, blah, blah…

Yes, I have spent too much money on senseless gifts! It’s what I do!

But at the same time, I made sure that the girls gave back by donating both clothes and toys to different charitable organizations and I am trying to make sure that Diva girl has a good understanding of how lucky we are and that there are little girls and boys out there who may not have the same holiday experience that she will have. So what if I had to pry a plush Dora doll out of Baby girl’s pudgy little fingers. She had a hard time understanding why on earth we would put a pretty good toy in a big cardboard box instead of bringing it home.

She’s two. I can see it from her perspective.

But seriously, I wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season where you eat a little too much and sleep a little too long. Where gifts are given and received with love and appreciation and family time does not descend into chaos and conflict. Hugs are offered freely and kisses are given with sweetness. Turkey and stuffing and wine and good cheer are all a part of the days to come…

Or you could just sit on the couch watching a movie and eating Chinese food.

  1. It is just my husband and I, waiting on baby (will be induced Jan 2nd). Watching movies and cuddling. I can’t complain. I would be way to exhausted to deal with a big crowd. Gotta save up my energy for next year 🙂

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you and yours 🙂

    • Congratulations and Good luck on the new baby! Ahhh yes…cuddling….I remember it well! Sigh…oh well! Definitely enjoy those moments and the wonderful ones you’ll have when your little gets here.
