Whoa, Momma!

To wrap or not to wrap kids' gifts? That is the question



Mom_package_2When I was a kid, Santa would come Christmas Eve and leave toys under the tree -- in unwrapped boxes. So it stands to reason that I would do the same thing for my kids, right? Wrong. I wrap every gift and make sure that they don't recognize the handwriting -- a friend writes the names on the tags.

But my husband thinks that I put too much pressure on myself. If Santa is bringing the gifts from his workshop, my husband's logic goes, why would he wrap them?

I'd love a little guidance. I'm willing to maybe give it a try -- but I need a really good reason not to use all that school fundraiser gift wrap.
