My friend Shell posted on Santa Claus and his generosity. I wanted to comment but I'm still on the bb and can't so I'll blog.
Today afterr church we were sitting at my parents and Nikki said she didn't wanna be like some parents stressing out trying to get their kids all they wanted for Christmas.
She was taking about me.
She said she wanted to get like 3 presents and try to stick with it so she could get something nice and enjoy the holiday while not stressing, and teaching her child about the true meaning of Christmas at the same time.
I so wish I had done that.While growing up
I got mine most everything on their list and let me tell you those girls knew how to make a list.
I hate that they knew how I stressed and still do now because I feel like I cheat them now. I love that instead of being like me they learned from my mistake.
I'm all for the 3 gifts.
I think it teaches kids something.
I think kids don't appreciate things now days because we give them everything.
I think....know my kids make me proud for wanting to change the way I taught them to be at Christmas time.
In my defense I was a single mom for a long time with no help from their dad. I couldn't splurge on them except at Christmas.... But I wish I had done it different.
My net comes back Tuesday!!
