it's a wonderful life....
christmas break has officially begun! there is snow on the ground and the big day is only four days away! can you see it now? a fire in the hearth, the children in their footed jammies, cookies baking in the oven.. putting on hats and gloves and snowsuits to go sledding... gifts piled under the tree. do you smell the evergreen and cookies baking? can you hear the christmas music playing softly in the background?
well get with the program cause that is not reality! try laundry piled everywhere, kids fighting, hot pockets warming in the microwave, sounds of whining and complaining (MOMMY!! i'm booorreedddd....) roads turning to black slush as people drive like maniacs because they put off their shopping until the last minute... did i mention putting hats, gloves, snowsuits, boots and layers of socks on four kids for them to spend a grand total of three minutes outside?
