I made the mistake of buying the Christmas chocolate advent calenders on the sixth of December this year .. so on the first day, Rocco got to eat six chocolates.
Try telling a 3yr old why he can't have six advent chocolates every day. He will not understand .. tantrums will ensue and the calenders will lay on top of the fridge gathering dust until Christmas morning when they can eat all the goddamn chocolate they want to.
Max did craft all by himself and came up with these:
double Ninja Stars.
I paid him $1 for each one and then made them into Christmas decorations.
I had to put the christmas tree up by myself this year. I put it up by myself every year, but this year it stung hard. I'm the only adult in this house now. But I swear to god, nothing ... and I mean NOTHING, says Christmas more than an oversized santa tie from Hot Dollar.
Every year I say, I'm going to make a gingerbread house from scratch! And never, ever do it.
This year I decided to do it despite myself anyway. Tried to force myself to get all festive and shit. This is what happened.
