TubaDad got home from a long trip to Singapore last night (hallelujah, there is another parent in the house again!!!) and we’ve both been lazing around taking it easy this morning.
The girls (who despite our best coaching simply do not have Saturday-morning-sleep-in-and-take-it-easy personalities) have been running up and down the stairs, amusing themselves with all the cardboard moving boxes, playing with their toys, and checking on us every few minutes. They already had breakfast in bed, watched some Disney channel, sucked down mugs of hot apple cider, did Sudoku with me, found Elfala (who spilled crayons all over the counter and wrote them a note!), and many many other tiring things.
TubaDad and I observed it all from bed. Just. Couldn’t. Get. Up.
We heard screaming, jumping, and squealing. Ro came running up the stairs just beside herself yelling “We have Tangled!!! Mama, daddy, we have Tangled!!!” Then ran back downstairs, leaving us a little puzzled. Oh crap – suddenly I realized that they must have looked inside the cardboard box from Leapster that I had carelessly left in the office and found one of their Christmas presents, the new Rapunzel Tag book.
They were so happy we didn’t have the heart to take the book away and make them wait until Christmas. So I guess they just opened their first present on Dec 4. And I guess we’ve now entered the era when we can’t leave Christmas presents out in plain view.
Merry Christmas to all!
