shop till you drop

There are pros and cons of Christmas shopping with your kids when they are too young to understand the concept of Christmas. At first, it looks like a positive because they have no idea what is going on as you leisurely walk through the toy aisles and put items in the cart.

But then you have the problem of how cute she is.
And don't you just want her to wear her new Beatles baby shirt right now?

Or play with her first ever Minnie Mouse right this minute?

Obviously these were both a failure to resist by Lila's G (grandpa). I see a lot of moments in the future of Lila getting her Christmas presents long before Christmas morning. How do you keep from giving your kids their presents too early? And how many presents do you plan on getting your little one this year? We are thinking a few toys, outfits, books and something special to celebrate her first Christmas. But next time, we will have to put them directly in the closet before the cuteness creeps up on us.

Nothing's as mean as giving a little child something useful for Christmas.
