We need to work together a bit more. Seriously.
I will love you until my dying breath, but truly, when you three are arguing with each other (as well as with me) over the size shape and variety of tree we want to bring home for this holiday season, I am so ready to jump ship and swim to the shore in the New Year. I know that three of us are particularly visual and creative, AND strong-willed opinionated souls, but thats why we need to work as a team. We could storm castles with our out-of-the-box ways! But when we are feeling fractious and divisive -well lets just say that there is nothing as cheerless and merry-less as that.
All things being equal, we did, in the end, pull it together. You younger two realized the need, at least this year, for a tree that is not the size of Mt. Everest, and I was forced to let go, temporarily anyhow, of my need to control the situation when my perfect tree was sold to someone else while we were bickering. In the end, your dad and, you, mr. oldest, saved the day by just taking the tree where we had some kind of consensus and purchasing it. Phew.
Then we all relaxed! It was amazing!
And thank you for allowing me to kill time while your dad had to run go get cash, with my camera and you all as models. See how much fun we have when we are not bickering (and I realized, how much you all need a haircut before the 24th).
cheerio for now boys!
love you three so very deeply!
