My husband was the fourth child in his family with 13 years between him and the third child. His father was diabetic and unable to work, his mom stayed home to take care of dad, the 3 other kids were grown and moved out. When it came to christmas there wasnt much money. He has told me alot of stories that just made me sad. He was lucky to recieve a pair of gloves and a stocking full of oranges on christmas morning. Dad was usually sick and mom stressed didnt make the holidays full of joy for anything. For me christmas was always magical. We spent time making cookies, singing, wrapping presents, laughing. My parents didnt think twice about spending $2000 on my brother and I. Spoiled? Yes I agree.
The problem being with such different backgrounds how do we find that happy medium for our 4 kids? My husband will admit he is a scrooge. He doesnt want to go to activities, get a tree, etc. Thinks Im crazy to do all of that. cont..
