Giving Christmas gifts

We usually give a present to our kids’ teachers, leaders, etc. Most other families seem to do this too so it almost feels like we HAVE to give rather than do it because we want to.

This year we’re torn – there’s someone we don’t want to give a gift to but it feels rude and wrong to not give something.

Will the teacher feel insulted to not get anything? That isn’t our intent.

Is it giving the wrong message (to ourselves at least) to give a present we don’t want to give?

All I want for Christmas…

My nearly 6 year old son lost his 2 front teeth a couple of weeks ago. His grandparents, uncles & aunts and parents have been singing “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth“, driving him crazy!

This morning, he lost a third front tooth, so we’ve had to rewrite the song a bit…

He is well & truly sick of that song now, but we are still enjoying singing it to him.

His new teeth are now growing, and while they may not be fully grown by Christmas, they won’t be far off.
