It’s the MOST wonderful tiiiimme of the yeeear!
You know, the time of the year when we make our life one million times harder by trying to hide gifts from sneaky kids, bake more in 3 weeks than we have the rest of the year, and put up a tree in our living room covered in things the children should not touch. Then spend our days saying “don’t touch that” and rearranging misplaced ornaments before we finally say F-it and embrace the worlds ugliest Christmas Tree, complete with random assortment of action heros stuck inside the branches.
The commercials would have you believe this is the time of year parents gaze at their twinkle-eyed children and bask in their wonderment. The TRUTH is, this is a time of year we spend a lot of time wondering if all this is worth the hassle.
This first one is inspired by what it was like to put up our Christmas Tree this weekend.
And when I read this as Danielle Elwood’s Facebook status I snorted with laughter.
Merry, Merry! Pass the wine.
