Lessons Learned This Christmas

Christmas Lessons

Well Christmas is just around the corner and I decided to sit back and take stock of what we have already purchased for our children. I thought starting early would allow me to be more organized but no, I am still wondering what I have purchased, what I still need to purchase, where I hid already purchased items, and where exactly I put my shopping list.

My kids are ages 3 and 5 and really are at an age that is perfect for Santa. Today, they are so many great gifts for boys, like lego's, cars, and Switch & Go Dino's to name a few. Can you believe my son only asked for two things! Two! He is such a wonderful boy! He will receive those two things …. And then some :) I am sure in the next year or two that could very well increase.


My daughter on the other hand had quite the list, we know that dolls for girls are always a huge hit, we seem to buy one every year. Any dance video game was also on her list, along with a few other items like Peppa Pig and other toys.


My big lesson this year was a silly mistake. I thought because I did not have to remember many items for my son, it would be easier to remember all the items for my daughter… big mistake! Then, when I asked her what she asked for from Santa, she could not remember and added a whole bunch of additional stuff. lol

Note to self: Rewrite or copy the entire Christmas wish list for both of your children.

Now, organizing each and every toy for my children, I have neglected my husband. Isn’t organizing each and every toy for our children a present in itself? No? Oh ok, luckily I still have a few days to pick up a thing or two.

Best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful Christmas this year!
