it is only early November, but I have to admit I already went out looking for Advent Calendars for the kids for December. I had to, trust me! Last year they were sold out (on island) before I had a chance to grab any and we were scrambling last minute to find them.
And why is it such a big deal?
First of all, I grew up with Advent Calendars. They helped build the excitement for the holidays and probably are the reason why up to December 24th I am ALL THE THINGS CHRISTMAS, and as of noon December 25th I am kind of over it all.
Second: CHOCOLATE for BREAKFAST. Come one, no better way to start your day in december than with a tiny shot of chocolate!
And lastly, I love watching to see which kid can last. It is a simple form of torture and teaches patience better than anything else we parents could do. Here is a box full of 24 chocolates, BUT you can only open ONE A DAY! (insert evil laugh) It has taken my kids some intense training, and once or twice I have noticed them “jump ahead” but they are learning how to pace themselves, and that is the biggest gift of all!
And why does all this matter? I mean, November right?
I have a special treat for one of YOU!
