Mommy Memos: Overboard
The bad thing about starting your Christmas shopping early, is that you tend to buy way too much. I have A LOT of people to buy for...and i do it happily, trying to find each person the perfect gift. My main focus though is on the kids. I know I can't buy them everything...my wallet can't handle it, and I don't want them to grow up to be monsters. I do have a tendency to get them too much at Christmas. They have lists...very long lists...and Santa and I keep in close touch to decide which list items would be best. The thing I am looking forward to most this year is to watch them wait at the top of the stairs, while I get the camera ready, trembling with excitement....then their eyes, as they see what Santa brought them. Overboard with gifts? Yes. Worth it? Absolutely. I only get these little people for a short time...pretty soon they aren't going to want to wait at the top of the stairs, and they may not believe in Santa anymore...so I will continue to go overboard while I can...and be thankful that I am able to do so. Just make sure you cover my eyes when I walk by the shoe store, so I can pay for all of it!
