Tracking Santa, and Other Stuff

Today, we have been tracking Santa online (currently, he’s in Germany), baking confetti brownies for Santa, and preparing our traditional Christmas morning breakfast: Monkey bread. My house smells like a bakery, and I’m loving it, but right now, all I want is to tuck in the kiddos, finish wrapping gifts, and curl up with a book and get some down time before the madness tomorrow.

The excitement is starting to get to The Princess – and Pumpkin has been intensely teething for the past several days. The result is they are both off-and-on sourpusses, and it’s wearing on Hubby and me. We were able to invite one of The Princess’s friends over to play this afternoon, which chewed up a good chunk of the day for all of us. This kid is adorable – he is totally hooked on my “Invisible Koolaid” (which rocks – if your kids love cherry koolaid, and you hate the stains, buy the invisible stuff – I prepare it with the Splenda that comes premeasured precisely for mixing with koolaid so as not to have sugar-buzzy kids around). My choice of the Invisible stuff proved a good one when The Princess tipped her cup accidentally and soaked everything on and near the dining room table. I managed to maintain good spirits and Princess’s friend said to me, “You’re FUNNY!” I laughed, and said to him, “Well, isn’t your mom funny?” He paused. “My dad is.”


Tomorrow is going to be filled with laughter, joy, good food, family, and the occasional tantrum. I’m expecting it.

Merry Christmas.
