We had a lovely Christmas Eve. At least in the afternoon, that is. Lots of friends, Christmas pageant at church, amazing food.
The morning, however, was another story. It involved a very ugly scene with me yelling at the kids to pick up their stuff, escalating to me threatening to throw everything away, and raging that they shouldn’t be getting more stuff if they couldn’t take care of their things.
Just the kind of peace, love, and joy you want for Christmas, right?
