December 25. Day 360. Merry Christmas
I am the first to admit that not everything is glorious about being the parent of a teenager but on Christmas morning it is definately better to have a 14-year-old than a four year old.
My darling came ambling into the bedroom just before 8am.
In previous years it has been earlier, much much earlier,
Bleary eyed and barely focused we've watched as the youngster opened the Santa sack to see what is inside.
Some years, if we were lucky, we might get back to sleep. Many other years we were trying to assemble or desperately searching for batteries.
This year, there were no batteries and no assmbling a sleep in AND an afternoon sleep. And there are presents, the turkey and the pool. After a long hot day jumping in was a treat for all.
Taking the plunge were Jessica, Scarlett, Connor and Cleo.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
