Santa Fed My Kids Christmas Cocaine
By thejennyevolution on December 08, 2013
Kids across the globe are already jumping out of their skin just thinking about Santa’s arrival. I swear the big-bearded man swooped down to our house this year and fed them Christmas cocaine because they are BOUNCING off the walls.
Before the Thanksgiving turkey was even popped into the oven, my boys were asking when they could set up the tree, put up the Christmas lightsand pull out their holiday musical snow globes.
I bet if we could open the doors to the houses around us, we would see the same scene — gleeful squeals as the tree was readied for ornaments, ooh and ahhhs as the outdoor twinkle lights were turned on for the first time and nervous giggles as the resident “Elf on the Shelf” made its holiday appearance.
At this time of year, I find myself exasperated at the urgency in everything. Can’t you monkeys just wait for one minute before I kill myself trying to get the star on top of the tree? But then I remind myself that the biggest magic of Christmas is the infectiously pure joy kids have at Christmas…. Even if it seems like they’re just on Coke.
