    Awww! I cried a little!

    Advertisements
    Happy tears!!!

    I was talking to my mom on the phone and she told me that my son doesn't have a Christmas tree, he has a Christmas Chair!!!

    OMG I love my son so much. It's these little things that make you realize how much you have made an impact on your children.

    Years ago, when my son was in middle school, we were living in a tiny apartment while we built our house. We were spending so much time away from home between working on the house and working at our jobs, that the apartment was really only a place to sleep. In fact, for the 12 months we were there, I refused to unpack boxes!! I just kept out three plates, three forks, three knives, etc; the stuff that we absolutely had to have out.

    Since we always spent Christmas with the extended family and weren't going to actually be home on Christmas Eve and Day, and since the apartment was so small and cramped that there wasn't room for a tree, I refused to put up a tree.

    My son was quite upset with me, despite the logic involved. So in a moment of desperation, I grabbed a red tablecloth and draped it over the easy chair in the living room and voila! The Christmas Chair was born!!

    We've used it on occasion since then but we've also always had a tree so it really wasn't a big essential part of the holidays for me.

    But now! Now my son has The Christmas Chair instead of a tree!! I feel like I was a good mommy now!!
