Anyone else stressed?
Wenxin greeted me this morning just like he has every morning in December.
"Hey Mom, it's 11 more days til Christmas. 4 more days til Nathan's birthday. 9 more days til Grandma comes. And 17 more days til my birthday." He'll repeat the message at regular intervals throughout the day.
Maybe he's just excited. . . or maybe he's realized that there is real reason to be concerned that Mom's not going to get it all done in time this year.
Here are a couple of links for those of us who find that Christmas looks more calm and bright in our photos than in real life. (The second one is a post I wrote last Christmas for my older child adoption friends.)
Hang in there, ladies!
