Bub and I are so excited about tomorrow for different reasons. He’s excited because I promised him a trip to Disneyland. I’m excited because we’re breaking into our Advent calendar. We’ve never had one before because obviously I’m a mean mom who doesn’t want her children to have anything fun in this world. Also, because I didn’t really think he would get it before this year.
So, my mom actually created this Advent calendar for us. Well, not the calendar itself; she bought that, of course. It kind of reminds me of the one from Christmas Vacation, but we watched that the other night and it doesn’t really look like that one at all. But in my mind they’re similar.
She filled each space with a treat, and an ornament for a little tree that she bought also. (The first few days have garland, too.)
The tree has lights too, but we haven’t plugged it in yet, and won’t until we start to decorate it.
Bub has already peeked and knows that behind some of the doors is money (coins) and behind others are dollars. His little mind is going to be blown.
Can you even stand how cute my mom is? She suggested that Bubette will need her own in a few years and I’m sure she’s on it already.
(I did it. NaBloPoMo. BOOM.)
There’s still time to enter my Paper Culture giveaway!
