Lessons I have learned from wrapping Christmas Presents..........
(This is NOT a picture of my own tree!!)
#1 - Never buy wrapping paper from the $1 store just because it is $1. Invest in the type that has more than 1 foot on the roll!!!!
#2 - Do not start a tradition where EVERY child gets 10-12 wrapped SMALL gifts in their stocking. Wrapping those for 5 children takes FOREVER!
#3 - Teach your husband EARLY in the marriage that it is okay for him to do some of the wrapping. Do not think you need to do it all by yourself because 14 years of that shows him that you do not need help!!
#4 - Buy EXTRA tape because you WILL need it!!!
#5 - Instead of buying your children a bunch of inexpensive junk just get them 1 thing that they really want!!!
#6 - Do not wait until the last minute to get everything you need and then realize on Christmas Eve Eve that you still have not bought anything for your husband. Oops!!
#7 - Bring a good Christmas CD into your room to wrap and do not rely on Pandora to play anything but songs from before you were born. :)
Feel free to add to my list!!! Can you tell that I am wrapping gifts today?
