|The Magic of Christmas|
We came home, cooked our amazing lasagna, and ate our Christmas dinner in our Christmas PJs instead of our church clothes. It was Sidekick's suggestion, so why not? Who says we have to dress up for Christmas dinner? I read "'Twas the Night before Christmas" to him after eating chocolate pie, and he was sound asleep before 7:30.
Christmas morning with Sidekick was special and calm. Sidekick was appreciative and excited about each gift and Santa gave him what he wanted. My sister texted at 11:00 wondering what we were up to. I told her we could skype then. She responded "in a bit" (apparently her husband wasn't home right then???). Two hours later, I was still waiting. I kept trying to hold off putting together presents, starting a project, etc. because I kept telling Sidekick we will skype "in a bit". I was annoyed and texted my sister only to find that her boys were outside playing! WTF?!? We had been waiting.. apparently "in a bit" means several f'ing hours! I asked two separate times what time we could skype and never got a response.

My mom called me that night and couldn't understand why I was irritated. That conversation ended quickly. It was the first time I had heard from my mom all day. Merry f'ing Christmas.
A couple hours later we skyped my family and opened presents. I didn't care at that point because I was still annoyed. I felt like they let my son down. He was just so wrapped up in the magic and excitement of Christmas and then had to see a bunch of unwrapped presents under the Christmas tree all because of one excuse after another.
