Its better to be Imperfect this Christmas

I saw the best email yesterday that is going to change the way I look at Christmas FOREVER.  Yes, FOREVER.

Got my usual email from Love and Logic yesterday and it talked about how the best Christmas is the one that is not perfect. Not perfect in anyway.

Usually I get up and I have to make sure the kids wait and everyone is calm and opens gifts in an orderly fashion.....Did I do that as a kid, god I hope not. I hope that I didn't have to go gift by gift and wait in line and take turns. That would have taken forever. Well then again I am an only child so I wouldn't have had to wait that long until my turn was up again.

This Christmas, this Sunday...I am going to do something different. I am going to sit and watch and let the kids destroy the house and play and open and play some more with it all.

And I'm not even going to freak out about it. I'm going to take pictures and video and enjoy it all. It wont last much longer. They are growing up too fast, so I am going to let them do what they do best.

HAVE FUN and be Imperfect.

Why stress about trash and boxes and toys all over and yelling and screaming. Why? Perfect?  Who wants a perfect Christmas? Not me, so thought out and planned and charted out. If you spend any amount of time on the perfect I know T is probably reading this and shaking her head and saying "Yeah Right" but just wait and see.

This is going to be the best Christmas because I am going to absorb it all.

Kiss The Baby
