I'm just your typical average Mom. I do my best to create traditions. I want my children to have stories when they get older, just like the ones I tell today. With that said, I have to admit, I sometimes over do it during the holidays.
I don't buy a lot of presents. My children have plenty, and I also think it's healthy for them to hear the word "no" once in a while. But as for decorations... I can't help myself.
The meter runs like it's on steroids during Christmas. The unending strings of lights attached to the windows, the porch, the trees, the children. They're everywhere.
Valentines Day is fabulous. Everything turns pink. I mean everything. Love is in the air.
As for St. Patty's Day. Well, our last name is Brennan. Need I say more.
So now it's Easter. And what do you think I did? Well, I rushed to the grocery store of course, and bought four dozen eggs.
Did I mention I only have 2 children?
That's right. Somewhere in the depths of my mind I believed that my two boys had the patience to spend their Easter searching for 48 eggs.
The sadder part. I almost bought more.
I can't help myself. I just love the holidays. I can't wait till Memorial Day!
