Christmas is right around the corner, 34 days to be exact. In a picture-perfect world, I would be at-home baking desserts for Thanksgiving Dinner with all my Christmas gifts purchased and put away, not a worry in the world. But this is real life and every time I look at a calendar, I freak out. I'm no where near ready for the massive Thanksgiving dinner I need to cook much less have Christmas gifts purchased. My kids are ready though. They have gone through all the toy books that have come in the mail and marked up what they want. I do think they went a bit overboard but I guess only time will tell what Santa actually brings them! One thing I do know for sure is that we will need batteries, lots and lots of batteries! We are always running out and there has been a Christmas or two (or three) in the past where presents have been opened and there aren't any batteries to put in them.
No joy in these faces when they can't play with their new toys. I'm over it so this year I am ready. I already have some batteries on hand. I know I will need more but for now I am covered. You know what else? If I buy a toy for anyone this year, I am going to tape the required number of batteries onto the toy box. That way no other parent has to be tortured by their child on Christmas morning for forgetting the batteries!
