I missed my first Christmas party with son. Husband had to attend his school party because daughter's was at the same time. I did get to go with son after his party to the nursing home. He has always been sweet to the elderly and never scared. He hugged the patients and told them Merry Christmas. On this trip, he gave an elderly man one of his animal bracelets. I know some of you may think that is silly...but this kid loves his animal bracelets. And he gave one to someone else...someone he did not know...and no one told him to do it. That is what Christmas is all about.
I must say I am very teary eyed that this is her last year at preschool. This precious angel will be at big school next year. I just kept thinking while she was singing that this would be the last time she would do this...Thank you God for the moments. Thank you God for the memories. I have stayed home with these babies for 7 and half years. Hardest job of my life and would not trade it for all the riches in the world.
