‘Tis the Season to compete on who is going to buy the biggest and best present. To spend countless hours complaining that you hate being divorced. To talk about depression. To remind everyone around you why life just isn’t fair. To complain that you don’t get to spend quality time with your kids……..
BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!!!
All my life I wanted a man like Clark Griswold. So loving and kind. Heck, he was even going to use his Christmas Bonus to put in a pool!! He went to great lengths to make sure his family was happy even if it meant holding security guards up at gunpoint at WallyWorld…..And that man sure knows how to decorate a house for Christmas!! (without his wife asking!!) Yes, Clark, you are the perfect man!!
So now let’s snap back into reality…….Most of us married Cousin Eddie!
Now, to be serious.
To all divorced parents, I have an important Christmas message for you!!
I know you may be sad that you have to share your kids for Christmas. But guess what…Let them be kids! Let them enjoy their 2 Christmases. Enjoy the time you have with them and then be grateful that your ex spouse can equally enjoy their time.
Now is the time to make new traditions….with the kids and without the kids!
So, single parents UNITE!! Let’s make this the best Christmas ever for our little ones! Let’s put all anger aside for one holiday and make some good memories!
There is plenty of time to be bitter….Valentines Day is just around the corner!!!
Merry Christmas to all….and enjoy your Silent Night!!!!
