The Top Sucky Mom Moments Holiday Edition…

    Hilarious..especially #4. I can totally relate!! When I ordered the stuffed piplop & dragonite pokemon characters from Amazon, whoever packed/shipped the order was probably clueless as to what a pokemon is because we received travel mugs instead!!! I had a hard time trying not laugh while making my youngest stop crying. LOL

    Oh my gosh, where should I start!!! Ok so I don’t have an elf on the shelf because where I live, they must be pretty hard to come by since I can NEVER find one. But after reading your post, I would definitely be held to higher standards for making sure that thing is moved around creatively every freakin day and I just don’t have the time for that. So I guess not having it isn’t so bad. Especially when your trying to keep the magic notion alive that Santa IS real to your beloved kiddos but their non believing friends are out there saying, ” UGH UGH, he’s not real!
    It’s your mom n dad who buy all the presents.” ? Then you have to do damage control and explain that sometimes Santa asks mommy and daddy to help him. ? dodged another bullet there…

    I like baking, when I have the time. But I’m not gonna sit there and make 20 different cookie variaties for a bunch of 2ND graders. Too much work, besides they end up eating the store bought stuff that “Johnny’s mom” sent in, cause they end up liking those better! What a waste of time. Then my kiddo is heart broken cause his friends didn’t care for the ones he so lovingly picked out to make. Then I search for the right words to comfort him and tell him we can save these and put them out for Santa cause he’ll LOVE em!

    We don’t have snow in Houston TX (Although my kids would LOVE it to snow) but it can get pretty cold down here for us. We are used to steamy, 100° + weather down here cause we can jump in pool or go to the mall to keep cool. But a blustery 50° for us is COLD! My kids love playing outside, it’s not of question of can I go out to play, it’s a question of when are you coming in to get cleaned up! Then I have to layer them up so they can go out, then they start to peel layers off cauae they work up a sweat and end up with a cold once they’re out in it too long. Once they start sniffling, and sneezing they get whiney and then I do too.

    The god forsaken list…….
    So these guys do a pretty good job a making a list. Once Thanksgiving rolls around walmart and target put out the toy catalogs. I’ll grab a few of each, take them home and my kids make short work of cutting and gluing to make a wonderful colage of what they want for Christmas. It’s actually pretty neat and helpful. It shows exactly what the gift looks like and the cost. So no guessing there. I can snap a picture without making the list dissappear and share it with family members that want to help with the gift giving.
    I didn’t say finding the gifts was the easy part.

    The only thing I can think of to get me through, is that one day my darling boys will be grown and how much I will miss all of this when they’re grown and most of all, how funny and satisfying it will be to see them finally understand when they become parents themselves! ?

    Merry Christmas ya’ll! ?
