So, Christmas morning with a toddler…. It had its ups and downs.
A major up?
He was beside himself with excitement when he saw his toy kitchen. Like, absolutely in awe and disbelief – shy hand up by his mouth, smiling ear to ear, looking back and forth from it to us repeatedly like “Is this REALLY for me?!!?”
The kitchen was a total win. Getting him to open presents instead of play with his kitchen? Not so much a win….
There were lots of tears, crying, and screaming because opening presents OBVIOUSLY isn’t as fun as playing with the great new stuff that your parents should have wrapped and saved for last. We actually still have a few presents left to unwrap (hoping to do tonight) because he got to the point where he was screaming no and running away any time we tried to hand him a present. Hahahaha, never would have predicted that!
But he still had his moments of absolute adorableness.
And, he LOVED his Rhody horse.
And his construction cap.
So, despite the tears, screaming, crying, kitchen covered with a blanket and horsie put away for a nap, Christmas morning was definitely a morning to remember.
