Yesterday, I was on the floor juggling my toddler and my newborn and scissors and tape, wrapping up some gifts to send to my family in Illinois. It was torture. I usually love wrapping gifts, but suddenly I was so over it.
I thought about the mountain of wrapping I still needed to do for our own family unit, then it occurred to me: Why? Instead, this year I’m just taking everything out of the store packaging, putting a bow around it and sitting it under the tree. No wrapping paper to fuss with! My toddler won’t care one little bit!
