Christmas kicked my butt this year. For the first time ever, I had most of my gift buying and wrapping done by the beginning of the month, BUT, I got sick on the eve of Christmas Eve and so I just dragged when I needed lots of energy. I was short with my kids and Jeff. I yelled at Jeff for Jacob throwing up throughout three rooms of the house, and I sent John to his room when he spilled a cup of hot chocolate all over the counter and my clean silverware.
I just hope that all the gifts that my kids received off-set their memories of their short tempered mama. I do not want to hear in 10 years that Emma’s most memorable Christmas was the one where she lost her iPod touch and mom yelled at her throughout the 4 hours they searched and failed to find it.
I can hope, right?
This is one of my funnest presents. It’s called a “book book” and my handy dandy MacBook Air is inside. Such a fabulous gift for a book loving computer junkie, right?
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas filled with smiling faces!
