There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.

Thank God that Christmas is nearly over again. I mean, really, they put the bloody decorations up in town in mid-November!

We've done the presents, pancakes done, cauldron of chocolate mousse is made, the veggies are good to go, the turkey is primed and ready. All I need is better behaved kids.

Calm before the storm. Home, Geilston Bay. December 25, 2010.

Anyway, the terrible twosome got themselves a wee Wii. The Nintendo one, not the urine one.

Time will tell how that turns out.

What is it? Home, Geilston Bay. December 25, 2010.

Quote of the day? Child #1 finished opening the last of [literally] dozens of presents:
No more?

OH!!! [Slams fist] I NEVER GET ANYTHING!!!

Merry Christmas everyone.

You're right, with the title of this post. It does not happen to you that when your children open presents, you think, "and how come I did not get these gifts so fantastic when I was a child. "
Perhaps what parents do is that our children receive the gifts that we would have liked as kids, right?

Dina, Jen got a very costly new Mac! She must not have been naughty...

MDP, I think that you could well be correct.
