Have you let your children open any presents?

Today I let my son open his PSP because this is the first day of winter break and he and his sister were driving me crazy. It's too cold to let them go outside and play and all their toys are boxed up to be moved. So... I gave in, like a weak puppy. Have you let your kids open any presents under the tree (not the ones from Santa?)

  • haha yes. DH and I just let them open their pillow pets and snuggies. They have tons of presents so I am not worried about it. We don't do Santa so they already know how many presents they are getting.

  • No, I have never done that, although we don't put any presents under the tree until Christmas Eve. We do a big party at my parents house so all the gifts from grandparents, aunts and uncles are not here.

    I think we all do what is best for us though so I would not worry,

    Good Luck!

  • I didn't let him but ds opened one already. He's only one and found it under my bed and ripped the paper off, so I went ahead and let him have it

  • Yes they each got to open one because the wrapping paper kinda came off when my aunt mailed it so we just let them have it a few days early.
