I sure do love Christmas. And my sister is like the BOMB at decorating, for someone who has NO formal education on it. For the last couple of Christmases we’ve focused on a teal and silver theme. It seems to suit us pretty well.
And I’m all about themes. I was more about them before I had kids, because I want to be able to put they’re school creations on a Christmas tree while they’re growing up, and put them all together so I can give them a box of ornaments when they get all grown and leave me. I’m not sure whether I want that to happen, right now it’s a lot to think about. I mean she’s ONLY 2, and it’s ONLY her third Christmas.
But right now, at this age. I don’t love Christmas trees, or Christmas decorations, or anything. Because Cat is being a huge disobedient toddler. I keep praying for February to come. I heard that once they actually reach pass the 2 years and 6 months age that it gets better. That they stop throwing tantrums (Which I get a weekly fill of) and they start to level out a little. I sure hope that’s the case, because I just wanna shoot myself some days.
Ok so I’m a little sporadic tonight. One day I’m going to really let my mind just flow and post it. I think you all might be amused.
PS- What do you LOVE about the holidays? And what did you loose awe at after having kids?
