Take those minutes of Hallmark as you get them and the National Lampoon ones will make you laugh in the future. Merry Christmas, your tree looks beautiful.


I doooooo believe your story is short a few squirrels to qualify for National Lampoon Status. Thanks for playing but please try again next year!
Oh. My. Gracious.
We got the tree up when college son was here at Thanksgiving.The WHOLE FAMILY gathered round and took out ornaments & untangled lights and put branches on the tree. From 8:07-8:21 the carols played & lights twinkled. And then college son disappeared to facetime with his girlfriend, and the younger ones were ready for bed so here an ENTIRE WEEK later the tree is up & only has 5 ornaments on it.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day....

pass the egg nog lol


But Carmen, there are too many "look at our perfect Christmas with our smiling beautiful children and our Pinterest-perfect cookies" posts already! I would seriously not read your blog if it was like that.

I knew where this was going as soon as you put in the part about your son grabbing the youngest under her arms :) Hopefully the tree and ornaments weren't too damaged?


I thought of you when I saw #3 on this post this morning!

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
