The Mean Mom

Just ask my 7 year old, he'll tell you. Don't believe him? Ask my 14 year old, if she still leaves you in doubt, my 17 year old can confirm it too.

Sleigh bells ring...

And I think they only do it to be annoying...

There are 2 weeks... Yes, 2weeks until the fat man shows up at my house... You would think I would be ready... Not even close.

Anyone know how to bend the time and space continuum? If you do, could you slow it down for the rest of the world?

Got the big stuff for the kids, but not the filler gifts. Hubby is being a Scrooge and keeping a tight hold on the purse strings. Can't really blame him though... it's tight all around.

I had to break it to the kids that there would be much smaller piles under the tree this year.

Kyle's answer? Doesn't matter mom, Santa makes all the presents we want... had to explain copyright laws to him for that one... he thinks he's getting a TV, DVD player, a camera and his own computer... right... I think he is sadly mistaken.

Don't get me wrong, this won't be a bad Christmas, it will just be a little slimmer, and frankly? That's OK with me. It shouldn't be all about the gifts, or the getting. It should be about the family and the togetherness and the specialness of the day.

Christmas should be about the love... that's why we'll be spending it with my X-IL's here at 7 am for breakfast. It's become an odd tradition, that started out awkward, but now wouldn't be the same with out them. Besides, it's fun when she talks trash about the family... ;)

Now, anyone wanna come decorate, shop and bake for me?

    amazon.com my friend. It has been saving my ass this Christmas. Plus- it's harder for the kids to snoop through shipping boxes. ;)
