I have gotten two work-related gifts (one from a co-worker and one from an author) and I haven’t opened either one yet. Because I’m trying to set a good example for Brianna, who reaaallllly wants to open a gift before Christmas…

….oh. Oh my. I had to pause in the writing of this to go into the kitchen to check on dinner. When I did, I noticed that a gift that had come for Brianna yesterday that I’d left sitting in there was mysteriously missing. Yep, you guessed it. Somehow she’d snuck it off when I wasn’t looking, took it into her playroom and opened it. Not only that, but then she lied about doing it. Arrrrgh! She’s four. Too young for lying and sneaking! I don’t know how to deal with this, people! Parenting is HARD. Where’s my instruction manual?

I think I deserve a drink. And a present.
