I'm the MOM...

Growing up, my mom always bought gifts for everyone! She was so good about it! She also bought things to give to people from us and we never really knew what we were giving people. Was kind of like extra fun to have!

Well, now it's my turn to be the mom...and I suck...

Finding Wii Fit Plus with the Balance Board for $85.00 on walmart.com this last weekend was awesome! So, we jumped on it and well...bought it. It's my Christmas gift from Steven. I paid for it...he says he'll just pay for his gift and Marlee's with the money he owes me.

Well, with that being said, that seems like a dandy idea. Except I feel selfish.

I got exactly what I want but he can't get what he wants...because I don't have the money to get it for him right now.

And Marlee...oh Miss Marlee! It's her first Christmas...and I have nothing for her. I have no idea what to get her either!

I almost want to wait and see what everyone else gives her and then go get her something AFTER Christmas...but then what is she supposed to tear open or have under our 2 foot, silver tree????

I feel like I completely suck at life right now...and it hurts...

I'm supposed to the the MOM...

I am sorry sweetie. I know how that feels, and this year especially. Have you tried a local church adopt a family programs? We have no wee ones at home so do not qualify so the tree will sit empty, but know they are out there. Your gift to her would be seeking this out. Oh and FYI at that age they love the box, paper and ribbons more than the gift!

Yeah, we were talking about just wrapping some boxes..haha! Maybe I could wrap her Christmas outfit up and then she can wear it after she opens it...maybe...
