Four Christmases

Santa is coming tonight. Luckily, he's adapted with the times and understands custody arrangements.

So tomorrow, we are cramming all of Christmas into one day. As usual, we are being pulled In a thousand directions as everyone wants to see the kids for Christmas. It is somehow my fault that we haven't figured out a way to clone the kids so they can be in four places at once. So, we are going to give everyone as much time as possible and probably stress ourselves out in the process. Between the hours of 9:30 am and 9 pm, we will be in the car a total of five hours. We will see V's mom, his aunt, and my grandma (with the rest of my family), then have the kids back to their mom by 9pm. Everyone will just need to be happy with what they get, which will probably go something like this: Hi! Hurry, let's open presents! No, you can't actually play with anything. Ok, pack it up. Bye!

I will accept no crabbiness or complaints. This is the only Christmas I get. Come Sunday, V and I will be home alone all day with no kids and no family to see.

So, suck it up buttercup! It's Christmas so deal with it! :)

  1. We did this last year, and it was insane!We tried to see both sides of the family on Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year, we split the holidays. Thanksgiving with one family, and Christmas with the other. Unfortunately, we do not have a working relationship with the dreaded ex. She offered to let us pick them up early Christmas day only to find out the reason why was so she could go party that night (not so we could have extra time with the kids on Christmas day). When we couldn't pick them up early enough for them, she shipped them off to her parent's house and we couldn't come and pick them up when we came back into town.

    Be thankful you guys can work together!
