So I am sleeping and at 3:45 hubby wakes to tell me that our boys 7 and almost 4 opened all the damn presents! All of them! My seven year old can read so I just don't understand why they opened ALL the presents. Not just theirs but their baby sister too. It's a fkn mess by the tree and I have a big knot in my throat because I just want to cry. So one of my kids had to wake the other to go and do this. I told hubby they will not be opening other gifts today from other family that is coming over today. I have tried to tell them over and over again what Christmas was about and the gifts were just a bonus. Do you think it's wrong for not letting them open other gifts later? Or just tell me what you may or may not do.

I'd like to let you know that we talked to the boys.
I did wrap their sisters presents up again. We also made the boys clean up all the mess and talked to them again on what Christmas is really about. I will keep their toys away from them for a bit today and they will not open any other gifts.
Thank you ladies and have a wonderful Christmas!
