Last night I got all the Christmas presents wrapped and put under the tree. I was up until about 2 doing it. Well this morning I woke up and the kids were still asleep like always, so I decide to go take a shower. Well while I'm in the shower DS wakes up...and decides to start opening presents! He got one DVD open and a toy. Did I punish him? No. Did I yell at him? No. The smile on his face was just too adorable and I couldn't get mad. He is 3 1/2 and DD is 4 will be 5 next month.

I also let DD open one of hers too just to avoid that fight.

So go ahead bash away. The look on my DS face was priceless

I'm glad you didn't punish him.  He is still too little to understand that it is not Christmas yet.  I don't put wrapped presents under the tree until Christmas morning because the temptation is too great for my little ones.

I had to get out the calendar and show him when Christmas is. He told me he was sad because I would not let him open his presents. I told him if he opens them all now what will he open on Christmas. He said ok and told me that he wanted some breakfast and to watch the movie he opened lol.

That's just the way my family has always done it. When I was a kid and now with my kids. Presents from people are wrapped and Santa presents are brought out Christmas eve.

Besides I suck at wrapping.
