Today is December 1! November feels like a whirlwind with our renovations and sicknesses. I'm excited for the Christmas season though.
As a parent, the Christmas season is pressure because your child only gets one childhood. She only has one Christmas being five. You want to make it special. As I received Christmas catalogs, I gave them to Laura. She wants everything. Last year she was a little more precise.
I laughed because days later I gave Laura the same book and things she wanted before weren't important anymore. So this year I'm using my common sense. I have gotten 80 percent of her gifts. I'm doing a lot of art project kits, a wagon for her toys, blocks, Legos, movies, one doll, books, a yellow dragon (her request), power rangers, jingle all the way and a play kitchen with food.
