This is probably cheating that I have found good in the world because of the same person two days in a row but this is my blog so I guess I should make the rules, right? I hate taking down Christmas decorations. I get so excited to put them up each year and I enjoy them so much. Maybe it is that I hate to see the wonderful season end, I'm not sure why but the glow of the lights and shimmer of the decorations are a comfort to me. It could also be that I dread January so stretching my Christmas decorations out helps me deny January is here. My husband has been bugging me to get them down so I finally made a goal that today would be the day. I started taking it all down and throwing myself a pity party. My little man was "helping" me and that made all the difference. He helped me realize that I needed to stop being dumb about this and just enjoy each moment. He put the tree skirt on his head and we ended up playing together in the skirt.
