 Since bills come first this is what I plan to do Christmas morning...

I will turn on the lights, and say, "there you have the gift of electricity"

Turn on the water and say, " you have the gift of running water"

Then when the heat kicks on I will say, "hear that? it is the sound of heat"

There you have it! they have what they need!

I'd rather have running utilities before a gift.

It is what it is I guess. You could put bows on the switches and faucets.

Lol. I remember when my oldest was four someone asked if her mom had bought the toy she was holding. She said "My mommy doesn't buy toys. She buys electricity." She's spoiled rotten now that I've bettered myself. I probably ought to take her down a notch so she can appreciate things like she did before I was making $20,000 a year.

I really like the bows on light switches and faucets.

My youngest (3 years old) burst out crying yesterday because we put up the tree and she wanted presents RIGHT THEN. I'm wondering why at three she even expects presents enough to cry about it. Smh. My oldest never expected presents from me. Man, those were the days. A present was mom being willing to pretend to be a mermaid with you and "swim" as we walk down the street to go meet other people's pets at the dog park.

Have you ever signed up for gifts? I never did, but I know that's an idea. And do your kids have anyone else in their lives who give them gifts? Like grandparents? Aunts and uncles? My oldest's dad and his side of the family used to buy her a lot even when things were pretty lean on my side of things. That helped, knowing she had gifts even if I hadn't been able to give them to her.

 Both sets of grandparents are dead and only and aunt and uncle to supply any gifts..so there will be 3 to 4 things to open from them.
