Gift All The Things!!!

Hey!! I don’t have holiday spirit . I’m a Festivus girl! Bring on the grievances and the pole!! In fact, I can be a bit of a Grinch. He was, and IS, my favorite Dr. Seuss character. He was prickly, unpleasant and enjoyed taking roast beast from babies. BUT, he also learned that he had a great capacity for love and seeing others happy. I love seeing my kids (well, the younger three. The big girl is a near teenager who has the classic inability to get really excited by gifts) GET HAPPY when they open a package! This is the part of the season I can get with!!

So…presenting…the

516D3KDHHYL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_I’m not sure what we’ll be getting the kids this year. I’m torn between getting them something they’d really love (like more toys to clutter the damn floor) or something *gasp* educational (they actually love learning games/toys) or something fun, that they’d love but would drive me crazy (anything, anything at all, that makes noise).

Wish all of us parents luck!! And buy SILENT toys!

Happy Festivus!!

  1. I decided against clutter this year. I bought my husband and 10 yo daughter only 1 shared present. A hotel reservation and 2 tickets to see Justin Timberlake in January.

  2. Ahahahaha– gifts that don’t make noise! That reminds me of the time my uncle gave me a drum/xylophone combo instrument toy, almost DEFINITELY just to annoy my dad. ;)

    Happy Festivus! ;)

  3. I always thought if I had kids I would do that thing where you give them something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read. Plus or including a gift from Santa. Keep the prezzie craziness to a minimum (but I have to say, my brothers and I still talk about the year after my parents got divorced where they both went INSANE and spent uncharacteristic amounts of money on us and we had the best Christmas ever.)
