We have good friends withÂ one child still under the age of 12. Our girls are all teenagers. Thus they were cajoled and harangued out of bed at 6:15 this morning, while I got to sleep until 9:00. That’s what I’m talking about.
Add to that, the fact that thereÂ wasÂ nothingÂ that requiredÂ assembly at 1am and you have an excellent picture of the advantages of this season of life.
Of course, there are manifold compensations and rewards for staging a Christmas for little ones. Those were fun.
All in all, I’m awash in gratitude. More thoughts later.
