Today, as I am at the babys due date, I see a lot of similarities ( I use “similarities” loosely, I should probably put it in quotes) between the anticipation of Christmas, and having our baby…
Both experiences are intensely exciting; Both experiences are unscripted, you don’t know what you are going to get; And for both, depending on how “civilized” your gift opening event is… it’s a big mess.
And, there’s a part of you that just wants to get the whole thing over with.
Ok, so there are elements that are not similar, like the pain of birthing a baby.
Hopefully you don’t have that kind of gift opening experience.
I do, however, hope your dreams come true this holiday season.
