Miss Cinders from Saturday Morning Ogre Mum invites bloggers to write a weekly post called Things I Know. This week, I thought I would join in the fun….
I know… how lucky we are to be able to enjoy Christmas with our extended family.
I know that spreading the celebrations over three days is better than trying to go to three events all on the one day.
I know that Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, sung out of pitch in toddler falsetto, makes me grin.
I know that grandparents will ignore you when you ask them to limit the number of presents they buy your toddler.
I know that a 2.5 year old can get bored with opening presents surprisingly quickly.
I know that no matter how much Christmas kerfuffel is going on around them, tiny babies keep growing.
I know that little ones who are overtired and overstimulated chuck massive pre-bed tantrums.
I know that three tantrums in three days is worth it, because this is a special time of year…
I know that, as much as I love Christmas, it is still a good feeling when it is all over.
And I know that I’m looking forward to a (hopefully) fantastic 2013!
(PS – Congratulations Granny Cinders!!)
