This is my Abby’s 3rd Christmas so we are still working on all the traditions and now it seems we may need to lay down some “rules.”
Call me crazy but I thought Santa Claus only made 1 stop per child and typically to the children’s home or wherever they wake up on Christmas morning. Let’s face it – Santa is really busy!
And doesn’t Santa bring the most gifts, the best gifts, the ones that the kids have been begging for all year to their own home?
Well I just realized that my in-laws have a special line to Santa and have come up with a different arrangement.
It looks like Santa is planning a big delivery to their house this year and I think it’s going to be bigger than the drop at our house.
We are really trying to make Christmas special for Abby. It’s the first year she really seems to know what’s going on and is excited to see what Santa will bring her for Christmas.
I think she is going to be a little confused when she sees what Santa brought to her house on Christmas morning and then goes to grandma’s house to find that Santa brought more there.
Don’t get me wrong! My in-laws are some of the most giving people I know – and they give to us all year in ways that are so much more important than presents! That generous nature and good intention is what got us here. And I recognize that.
It seems like this is a problem with lots of other friends of mine as well – trying to figure out who buys what off the special Santa list, how to keep it “fair” and the grandparents competing with each other.
What do you think? Have you had this problem? What are the Santa rules?
