If you got it all done today, what would you get do tomorrow? All those parents of newborns, babies and toddlers who claim their children sleep through the night, they are probably lying. Boys cry. If someone you live with has been whistling ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ for three months, you have every right to banish that song from your house or you can turn NPR up and ignore them. Your children may in fact make better gifts than you do. It doesn’t matter if it’s handmade, your ten and seven year old boys will not be delighted with a pile of clothing under the tree. You only de-clutter to clutter up again. Stop by, no really, stop by. Just let me know first.

It’s always a mess by this time.
