Two more days till Christmas! I can’t believe I’m saying this…but I, the grinch, am actually looking forward to it! So is Will. Truth be told though, we’re taking my friend’s dog for an overnight on Christmas and he’s almost more excited about that!
But…I will say, being a single parent at Christmas has a couple new challenges now that Will knows who Santa is and what the gig is all about.
Will keeps asking what I asked Santa for. And we have two stockings. Someone needs to fill mine – and that would be me. So…I went to Target last weekend and stocked up on some toiletries and I’ll be wrapping them up and then unwrapping them on Christmas. And what did I ask Santa for? A blow-dryer. Did you know that the elves make kick ass blow-dryers. Yup – so I’ll be opening that one on Christmas morning.
I’m also taking the time to learn how my timer works on my camera so on Christmas morning – I may be able to actually get a family shot of us …in our new jammies, opening our stockings. That would be novel.
Do you get presents from Santa? Stockings? I always hesitate to make up new ‘rules’ – you know like Santa only brings presents for kids….(or the whole ‘no live animals on the sleigh debacle)…I want to keep him believing as long as possible!
