If predispositions are truly passed on from parents to kids, I suppose they got that from me. I used to go all nuts over Christmas too long before it's actually there. Well, Christmas still is my favorite time of the year but I guess things change slightly when you're a working parent. As much as I'd love to think about the cool air, good food, decorations and gifts, there's work and bills calling.
There's nothing like growing up to ruin the Christmas spirit, but I'm trying hard not to act like a troubled adult now. I want to give my kids the gift of the holiday spirit while they can savor it without worries. So yeah, I'll probably be repairing some wreaths this weekend.
