I’m so full of it! Full. Of it. I can’t remember when I’ve been this excited for Christmas, surely it was when I was a kid. Or maybe the year we flew to Disney World on Christmas day. I’m not sure, but I am sure that this year is great.
This week is going to be so fun. Everything I have to do this week is all about prep, meal planning and shopping for food, I do have one last thing to buy and Nate suddenly wants to see Santa so we will brave the mall first thing tomorrow morning. But I’m telling you, I feel like a kid! I don’t even care gifts for myself. I only care about the light in Nate’s eyes and the excitement every night before bed when we take another link off his chain and count out the remaining days.
I miss sleeping in and all sorts of other things about my life before these kids but none of it was as fun, as exciting, as magical as being a Mom on Christmas. There is something about holding my baby in front of a lit tree while listening to Christmas music that brings tears to my eyes. It is the most wonderful time of the year.
Are you ready, what’s your week looking like?
