Patience.

17 Dec

We started our advent calendar on December 1st and the kids were so excited to wake up every morning to a piece of chocolate and countdown the days until December 25.

We stayed on track for 4 days…then Little Man started a round of antibiotics.

You know the white, chalky, disgusting antibiotics that Pediatricians love to give strong-willed 2 year olds??

So we chased him around the kitchen island with the medicine dropper in one hand…and a piece of chocolate in the other…and he washed the drugs down with a piece of chocolate.

And Sweet P got her chocolate too because it wouldn’t be fair for ‘him to get a piece and not me!’

A mom has to do what a mom has to do.

And now 9 days before Christmas…and both of my children’s advent calendars are empty.

Finished.

Gone.

Next year I will do better.

We will work on patience.  And pray no one gets sick the first week of Christmas.

Happy week before Christmas, friends!  Are you ready for Santa??

    Poor little thing! I hope he feels better soon!! I can’t believe they still make those calendars. I used to have them as a kid and LOVED them!! I had zero patience also and would cheat and sneak several days at at time :) -Angie
