Well I'd just like to share a thought or two about feelings at this time of year, and wonder how others are coping.
For most of the year I manage to cope pretty well with balancing my little self ... Sure there are times when little me demands more attention than usual, but at Christmas.... boy it's tough to contain my 'little' excitement.
Actually, I'm surprised I don't give myself away in public haha. Shopping is murder... I just about feel like I'm gonna tear in half...I literally feel like I am constantly having to restrain the over enthusiastic toddler I'm taking with me everywhere. This absolutely sucks and leaves me feeling quite frustrated and sad.
I know that I can't just gravitate to all the little kid stuff, but it seems at this time of year it is absolutely everywhere I turn.
When I'm shopping with my partner, I am usually holding her hand, and although I desperately want to touch everything, I genuinely feel like that toddler that's being towed around by his mom, you know the one
I actually find myself sulking as I look enviously at little kids just soaking up all the magic this season has to offer.
I know there's no answer really except to totally give in to it....which isn't an option, I guess I just have to be grateful for whatever awesome moments come my way.
What really hurts is that I'm finally in a position to have what ever I want, and yet I know that I can't, because well, it's not ?-&(:#@ right is it.......try explaining that to the poor little bub in my head....he just feels like he's being deprived.
Enough emo talk, I really do like Christmas, and I can get away with some childish silliness so I'll enjoy what I can.
Oh.... So this is not a blog, do you get this way around the holidays, and if so, how do you cope?
