I wish I could do a post about what my kids are getting for Christmas like I have in the past but times have changed and my kids read my blog. Can I just say, I'M BUSTING! I combined a little bit of hoarding bits and bobs over the last two months with a little fierce Black Friday shopping and some fevered Ebay bidding--those were the funnest and most exciting purchases. They are for Sam. I can't say anything else. I wish I could tell you. Or even give you a hint. I can't.
Here's the secret to having an awesome Christmas with your kids: Foster a spirit of deprivation throughout the rest of the year. Sam wants clothes this year--he's been wearing floods for the last three months! Hahahahahahahaha. Haha. How happy is he going to be to get some pants that fit? I actually pulled them out a week ago and gave them to him out of shame. Do as I say, not as I do.
Bono, Why so serious?
Member the good old winking-sash-wearing days? Back then we used to say, "Edge, Why so serious?"
I am so excited because my kids got me something really thoughtful and awesome this year (from what I gather). They pooled their money and Christian paid for the rest! And my kids have like $75 each! What could it be? I really don't know. Usually I know but I act surprised. Merry Christmas.
