I can't believe that Thanksgiving is over already and its almost Christmas. There are times throughout the year that I crave Thanksgiving food, and then when it gets here it is kind of depressing because the year is almost over. I am not a huge Christmas fan, but it does get me kind of bummed out (kind of like the Grinch). We don't have a huge budget for Christmas presents so I always feel like a cheap shit for not getting people great gifts. Sometimes family hassels get in the way of actually enjoying the holidays. I love putting up decorations but get sick of them shortly before Christmas. I also feel like (not to be preachy and weird) people have forgotten the esscence of Christmas and the meaning behind it. Christmas is a time to be with your friends and family and enjoy their company and be thankful for the blessings in your life. I feel like I myself forget about how to be appreciative of Christmas and what it stands for, but I am going to make an effort to keep the spirit of Christmas alive and not be like the Grinch!

Spongebob Square Pants had his Best Day Ever that started last night at 7pm and runs for 24 hours worth of episodes and then the movie. I do enjoy a Spongebob episode or two, but 24 plus hours of Spongebob is more than I can take. I do know that I can turn the TV off, but our TV is on pretty much all day long (mostly for background noise). I could change the channel, but I don't actually want to watch TV, so I just left it on. Donovan likes Spongebob and even he got sick of it. I was dreaming of other shows like The Fairly Odd Parents, Jimmy Neutron and other Nick shows. I can't get Spongebob's signature laugh out of my head and I fear that I myself will be laughing like that from now on.

Is it wrong that I want my son to have some degree of separation anxiety??? I am so overjoyed that he is comfortable being with me and daddy and doesn't have any anxiety about either of us leaving. He does occasionally have some separated problems when we are both leaving him and it is with Emily, but other than that...he pretty much closes the door in my face.
He knows in the morning that after I am showered, dressed and getting my shit together that mommy is leaving soon. He goes to the door, tries to open it, after I open it and he hands me my shoes, makes kiss sounds, gives me a few kisses, waves goodbye and most of the time shuts the door on me before I can actually grab my purse. I actually get about 10 goodbye kisses before the door is officially slammed in my face, but still...come on kid, could you cry like a little bit! He does the same thing to daddy too when it is daddy's turn to leave, so I know it's not just me. On Saturdays (grandma's day), he practically pushes me out of the door.
I am seriously happy that he feels comfortable, safe, adjusted and secure and doesn't suffer from separation anxiety, but some amount of missing me would be nice...for me. I can't really recall anytime that we had separation anxiety issues arise, even when he was a baby. I think he is just so adjusted to both mommy and daddy time, that it makes no difference who he is with.
