This Christmas was an interesting one at that. My husband just got out of the military a few months ago & we have been in the middle of a big move & hella everyday life dramas. We are trying are best to get through all the stress, but there was no way I was going to pass up Christmas. Not when it was my sons first real Christmas.
He is now 1 & he had a blast opening up his presents! & he partied like a rock star. This was definitely my up, because I wanted him to not go with out. & the reason I say without is because when we decided we were moving states once the military thing was done my son was still in his “learning to be a human” phase. He didn’t really have a lot of toys & what not. So on his first birthday, we asked our family & friends to help us with his college tuition instead of getting him toys, because the move was already crazy enough. So again for Christmas I wanted to make sure he didn’t go without because he loves toys & he didn’t have any! Especially complicated learning toys.
Now the downs to this Christmas were much worse than normal because we’ve been bouncing all around this country. & times for our little family just aren’t ideal. & the stress was causing mad strife between the adults. & I know I’m lacking in details on this part, but really it’s just life & it’s none of anyone one else’s business what we argued about. Plus, you probably really don’t care. Lol.
But all in all, it was still fantastic because I won’t ever remember the bickering over the joy & smiles on all the children’s faces when they received their gifts.& being with my family that I haven’t seen in 3 years. & that’s the point of this holiday anyways. To be with family, to give what you can to others. (If you’re not religious of course, because then it’s all about the birth of our lord & savior! For he was the ultimate gift!)
Merry Christmas all! God bless & have a wonderful new year!
