I usually get called a grinch by other moms that I know- though it’s more behind my back than to my face. And it’s in expressions on faces when we talk about what Santa is bringing the kids for Christmas.
My kids have always had a good Christmas. They’ve never asked if that was all there was or wondered where a certain item was that wasn’t under the tree for them. There have only been 3 Christmases so far when someone was old enough to question, but still.
Santa does bring my kids quite a few presents.
Especially whatever is most important to each child.
But, when Monkey was 2: he wanted crayons. At 3: playdoh. At 4: MORE playdoh. Bear hadn’t cared until this year and Cub is still too little.
Just because my Santa isn’t as generous as yours don’t make me a grinch.
Btw- blogger is hating me this morning and making everything be center-aligned, even though I keep trying to change it. Sorry!
