Our tree is up and the decorations are done but it's not that. I'm stressed because we haven't gotten our shopping done. No Christmas presents, toys, gifts...HOW are there less than 15 days left and we're so far behind?
I know some people who are not only done with their shopping, but their gifts are actually wrapped and ready to go. uggggggg...I'm so far behind.
Christmas isn't about the presents or how much you give/get, but I still want the kids to be able to have what they've hoped for on Christmas morning.
I'm learning that it was easier when they were younger and the tree was surrounded with huge toys that were big and bulky for toddlers. Now...thirty dollars will get you a tiny little game for their Nintendo DS that barely looks like anything under the tree. It feels like we're spending more and getting less.
I need to get on the ball and start shopping. I think next year I'll start in September.
