Land of Second Guessing

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Well, I’ve hit that point! You know the one. You shop, you order…you stack up & hide stuff then you let your mind take over and before you know it– You’re convinced you don’t have enough “wonderful” for your kids to open up on Christmas morning!

Please, tell me I’m not the only one who does this?

Every year I search high and low for the items my kids feel are important enough to put on their lists. Sometimes they have something way out of budget reach (just to remind me they are dreamers too) but for the most part, it’s something that they can actually use.

I like having frugal on target kids! 🙂

This year, like most…I have tried to fulfill all wishes with a little extra stuff thrown in. Yet, here I am doubting myself and clamoring for a few “last minute things”! You know, ipad 2’s and BIG gas cards! Teehee!

Oh I kid!

Although, I would certainly appreciate both of those under my tree this year… Dream on, mama!

So, tell me. Do you second-guess yourself too? Yesterday, my daughter (who will go un-named) asked me why are we the only family without wrapped presents under the tree? To which I replied, “Because, I have no privacy to wrap ( I want to have a wrapping party like BIGMAMA ), I work full-time, I’d rather pick my nails, the dog needs to go out and because I’m busy!” Hrmph!

But out, kid!

Note to self: Get to wrapping that pile of “stuff” stacked in my bedroom! STAT!
