ThatCyndiGirl Posted December 26, 2011 Share Posted December 26, 2011 ....scheduling Christmas during a PMS week, particularly when DH is deployed. I slept in the living room last night so I could see their faces when they woke up this morning. I stressed and stressed over the two youngest having the same number of gifts, about whether or not it was "enough". (they each had 7 and they were not extravagant at all.) My son saw his small stack of gifts and said,"Wow, there are just so many presents for me!" :001_smile: I sat there doing that ugly cry half-sob thing where you try to keep it from coming out full-force. Then, we went to IHop for dinner. On the way we passed a LOT of houses with lights. My son said,"It is just so beautiful everywhere I look!" Ugly-cry half-sob again. :001_wub: Our oldest had asked a few weeks ago what I would like for Christmas. I told her that I would LOVE a drawing of my Kitchenaid mixer, but with wheels and me in it driving around. She did that and framed it. :w00t: DH called just as we arrived at the restaurant. Our son told him about how, "Santa brought me a hat and left me a note that said,"All crooners need an awesome hat. Keep Singing! Love, Santa". (It's a porkpie hat like Frank Sinatra used to wear. Our son is a crooner.) I told dh that "we have the best kids EVER!" Then, we were sitting at the restaurant and the song Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home) came on and that was just IT!! Full-on ugly cry, complete with sobbing, snot and red face. Here's the song that brought me to ugly tears: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAJL3oHMBDw Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
