|Typical girl, Princess was excited to receive clothes as gifts.|
|Little Man really got into it, as you can see by his excited expression.|
|Finally got a smile!|
|We gave Little Man this toy cell phone. Less than $10 at Target since it was on sale.|
|Princess received this toy microphone. Also on sale at Target and I think I paid under $10 for it.|
At first, I felt bad. Weren't we supposed to give our kids a ton of new toys to unwrap at Christmas? Clothes and books were just supposed to be "extra" gifts, right?
A realization struck me. I don't have to give my kids so many toys that they don't know what to play with just because so many other parents do. And besides, we have a lot of relatives which means a lot of other gifts for the kidlets.
So yes, I messed up Christmas because I didn't buy my kids as many gifts as I had planned. And it was the best mistake ever.
