THE POST OF WHY
WHY can a five-year-old go from dancing around and perfectly happy to throwing up in the car ten minutes later?
WHY can that five-year-old be holding an open plastic bag and still manage to throw up only on himself?
WHY do I have mono for the third time? Right before Christmas?
WHY did I lock myself out of my cold storage room?
WHY are all the Christmas presents in the cold storage room?
WHY haven't I read a really fabulous book lately? WHY do the ones I've read either confuse me or bore me?
WHY do I not feel the slightest guilt about buying pre-made sugar cookies, ready for my kids to decorate? Am I missing a piece of Mormon mom DNA?
WHY are newborns so intoxicating? WHY am I so lucky to have a brand-new niece (my first!) right before Christmas?
WHY do I love my family so much?
WHY am I as excited for Christmas as my children?
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
