Twas Christmas Morning..........supposedly

Twas Christmas morning and not a creature was stiring, not even.......  wait!  The dog was doing the potty dance at the door. Come on, pup, out you go.

Where was I?

Oh yeah.  No creature was stirring, no one at all.  There were no kids ripping paper and scattering it around the room.  There were no shrieks of joy and amazement.  There was no tantalizing scent of Cinnabons baking.  There was no anticipation of the Grandparents visiting for Christmas breakfast.

Just silence and a clean, organized house. 

This is the reality of my first Christmas Morning without Jakes waking up in my home with me.  It broke my heart to miss out our traditional Christmas morning stuff.

Without the chaos and the mess and the grandparents barging in, it just didn't seem like Christmas.

Even later in the afternoon, when the gparents and Jakes were in the house, it didn't seem like Christmas day.  I guess I just have to accept that things are changing as we grow up.


  1. ack. sorry...silence would be not a lot of fun on christmas...hugs. ours was different as well...home just with other family...was quiet in a sense, but got a lot of playing done and ended the day exhausted but happy...ha...

  2. It's hard to see the holidays change when the kids start to grow up, believe me I know!

  3. Oh my, that makes me sad as I know my Christmas traditions will be changing all to soon as my kids are growing up so quickly.

  4. This must be so hard. I was heartbroken when the last said Santa wasn't real. I can't even begin to imagine what you were feeling.


Leave me some seeds
