Does anyone else get a little depressed when Holiday shopping. Just thinking about Christmas shopping for my kids has got me anxious. My kids have so many toys that it's so hard to think about adding to the load. Everyyear we have them go through and tell us what they want to get rid of and some things we have to secretly do away with on our own. Even with this, it seems we still have more than enough. I think about people who have both sons and daughters-they must have quite alot of toys; some for each gender. My girls share most of their toys and even during christmas they get joint gifts. I am very close to buying each one toy and the rest clothing or things that can't get stranded around a room very easily-like a picture to hang on their wall. Yeah what a pooh of a mom i am. In the olden days children were happy with just a rag doll-why can't our lives be as simplistic as it was back then? Why can't it be? I am always trying to simplify and when I hear that word I imagine a one room cabin-with only furniture in it, three sets of clothing per person, and the Good Book. What would it be like to have to just clean that everyday?? Am I alone in wishing this?
