Since our families are a mishmosh, our winter holidays are custom-made.
It is a jumble of food, festivities and fun. We like it this way. I can have my latkes and Rudolph too.
Anyway, I'm unplugging for the next few days so I can drink it all in. And by that I mean lots of alcohol.
No really, I'm looking forward to being fully present with the kids. I think that is probably the most important gift I can give them. To just be present with them. To give them my full attention. To not say "maybe later" when they ask me something. To just shut out the rest of the world and enter theirs.
I can't wait.
Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah & Happy Solstice & Happy Kwanzaa & Happy Festivus & Happy Yule & Happy Whatever Else I Unintentionally Left Out.
Happy Non-Crappy Holidays!
Whatever you celebrate in your home, I hope it is filled with joy and laughter.
See you next week.
