With an upcoming adoption trip to China towards the end of November, we are realizing that we need to get most, if not all, of our Christmas shopping done before we go. To that end, we have been on ebay, craigslist and other online sites trying to find some of this years requests. As with most parents, we sometimes disagree on what to buy. I will give you a short sample of our conversation this evening:
Me: "I'm really just trying to look our for our kids. I'm not trying to be a Scrooge."
Christi: (with a small smirk on her face) "Oh, it just comes naturally?"
Ah, the joys of parenthood:)
