Forget their two front teeth. Creating spoiled kids at Christmas is a fine line. Christmas means giving — but how do you not give too much?
Circa 2015: I have a child who wants EVERYTHING for Christmas. Seriously, the list has been going for MONTHS and ranges from Swedish fish to a trip to Disneyland.
I have another one who doesn’t have a single item on his list that is less than 200 dollars. Any of this ringing a bell with how things are going at your own house?
I get pie in the sky. Especially in example #1. It’s easy to think “Oooo, I want that!” It’s exciting and we all have wants.
I just don’t have a pie. I do have plenty of sky. 🙂
Christmas will happen at our house this year, but I need to be REALLY thoughtful of what they get and what will truly bring the most glee into their little faces.
Christmas is magical, and I certainly don’t want to lose that — but I don’t need to lose my home over it. 🙂
