I hear the word Christmas and one thing comes to mind: toys.
My kids are going to get so. many. toys. And you know what? They already have so many toys! I try to go through their toys the week before Christmas and throw away anything that’s broken, and donate anything they don’t play with anymore to make room for all the looming gifts they are about to receive.
None of us want our kids to end up spoiled, but it just happens around the holidays, doesn’t it? I love seeing my toddler’s face light up when he receives something he really wanted and will love. And so do his grandparents, his aunts, his uncles, etc. and so he winds up with a lot of gifts!
