After a few amazing days in the Monterey area without the kids and a couple days back at home with THREE children.... I would first like to say that I am glad for my husbands vasectomy! Jane was a doll, but now it is back to business because I just realized that Christmas is NEXT WEEK.
Enough with the daydreaming already.
However, among my daydreaming, I starting thinking about something pretty serious.
As many of you know, the holidays have always been a time of stress and havoc for me. I try to avoid the holidays as much as possible.
But this year as I was running for cover, I realized that I have TWO amazing children that I need that I want to enjoy the holidays to the fullest. I want them to look back on their childhood and remember how wonderful Christmas was. I want them to remember specific things that I went out of my way to make special for them.
So, tonight, I shouted, "Who wants to get in the Christmas spirit?"
And Carson replied... "Not me."
I have some work to do...
Maybe I should start with putting the Halloween decorations away and start decorating for Christmas.
