I don't want my kids to have the wrong idea about Christmas. Yes, it is tradition to sit around the tree and open gifts Christmas morning, but that's not all it's about. And I also don't want them thinking they are 'supposed' to get a bunch of stuff. I didn't have any money at all last year for Christmas because I lost my job three weeks before then. And this year I was thinking of doing things a little differently. I was thinking that instead of giving them gifts, maybe I could give them the money and then take them shopping for whatever they want. I have three kids, so I was thinking that maybe around one hundred, or one fifty, is a good amount for each of them. On the other hand, I like the tradition of them making me a list (they know Santa isn't real) and I get them the top three things on that list, and they open it on Christmas....what do you ladies think?Answer Question

OMG, now I feel very silly- I spent 2000.00 on each of my two children. I guess I do this because they have no extended family, so I buy things from Santa, Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, and myself. I should probably stop this before they get too old.
