well, it’s the 28th now. which means i’m officially way WAY behind on blogging, and also that Christmas has past.
it makes me so sad when people talk about “surviving” the holidays or “getting through until january” or whatever, since, obviously, Christmas is the ‘greatest day in the whole wide world.’ but…i get it a little. that much merriment (food, alcohol, smiling) does leave you tired and over-stuffed eventually.
especially when traveling with a toddler. when i’m tired and overwhelmed, i might get quiet and pout in a corner. when henry is tired and overwhelmed, he paints the floor with his snotty tears. i might be more quick to snap at robb, henry throws a shoe. (honestly? who throws a shoe?). and he had a lot asked of him. i think we had 6 or 7 different gift-opening parties while visiting our families. that’s a lot for a little guy.

Merry Christmas, all! and Happy New Year!!!
