Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Spending time with your kids on Christmas is a privilege and not a right. Ask any parent who had to negotiate visitation rights for the Holidays.

I’m missing my kids. They have been spending time with the other mom and dad while we are in the fortunate position of having Christmas as a family. As a blended family you learn to have your kids for Christmas every second year. I will be picking them up tomorrow to spend a wonderful Christmas together.

My oldest is almost grown up and this might be the last family Christmas where we will all be together while he is still under my roof. I still remember his first nativity play where he was a sheep. He was still in nappies and just sat there with big eyes watching everything around him. Now I have to look up to him, as he is already taller than I am.

It is exciting to have Christmas on the actual date instead of having it in early or on Boxing Day and I am like a little kid getting counting sleeps till Christmas eve.

At the same time today my heart goes out to all the moms and dads that have to spend their Christmas without their kids. You never get use to it, but it does get better.

Hope your Christmas is spend with all the people that you love and if not, that you still have a lovely holiday.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?

    I would like to express my thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of this type of crisis. As a result of surfing around throughout the the net and getting tips that were not productive, I figured my life was well over. Living without the presence of approaches to the difficulties you have fixed through this write-up is a crucial case, and ones which might have adversely affected my career if I hadn’t come across the website. Your own personal mastery and kindness in handling the whole lot was invaluable. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t encountered such a solution like this. I can at this moment look forward to my future. Thank you so much for your expert and results-oriented help.

    too? This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.

    Greetings, I think your site might be having web browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in IE, it’s
    got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Besides that, fantastic website!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four
    emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Many thanks!

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You obviously know what youre talking about, why
    waste your intelligence on just posting videos to
    your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  32. says:

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.

    Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
