The Holidays Are Hard.



Shew guys. I really love Christmas and I try to fill this time of the year with fun and entertaining stuff for the boys and I, but sometimes it really sucks. 

I hate that they don't have any family. I hate it. 

I feel like Christmas is a time that you should go to Grandma's and stay a few nights. Or go make cookies with your aunt. Or go with your uncle to play on a sled. Build a snowman with your cousins. 

Sigh. None of that here. 

I hate that I don't feel like they are normal.

There won't be any presents from grandma and grandpa, no big Christmas dinner. 

We will probably end up at the pizza place, and all the presents they open will say from Mom and Dad. 

I hate feeling like my kids get gipped because we have no family. 

I don't like to wish their life away, but I really look forward to when they are older, when they have girlfriends or boyfriends of their own, when they have their own kids, and our family is big and loud and happy. 

I hope I am doing a good enough job to be all the family they need.

Did any of you guys grow up with no extended family? Do you feel like you got screwed? Or did you not know what you are missing? 

I think sometimes this is just a big deal to me because I had such a big family when I was little. Maybe it won't matter to them, because they never had one. Sigh, I don't know.

I'm curious to know what you guys think about this.
