lesson 1001 in motherhood...

You can't expect a two-year-old to wait 20 more days until Christmas to unwrap a gift that's sitting under the Christmas tree, after telling him that it's FOR HIM.

Heck, even I don't have that kind of willpower.


Sorry Kaili, Robin, and Jaia...but your Christmas present didn't make it 'til Christmas. But thank you for your very thoughtful gift...Hudson LOVES it.

Joyce... it's called "hiding" the gifts...

I know!!! It was a temporary lapse of judgement on my part.

Kaili said...

Oh good!! I actually think it's a good idea to have some here and some there! Christmas is SO overwhelming for kids!

well, my kid made me wrap 3 of her puzzles just so that she could unwrap them and say, "une surprise!".lol.

think of him unwrapping his gifts as early-good-behaviour-gifts. ; )
