I hope everyone reading has a joyous holiday, no matter what the celebration, and enjoys time with good friends and family. For us, Christmas is all about spending time together as a family, beginning wonderful traditions. and making memories. I can’t wait to open that one gift on Christmas Eve, leave the cookies, milk, and reindeer food for Santa, and break out the NORAD Santa tracker to coax Fletcher into bed before the big guy arrives. I think part of my enthusiasm for “Elf on the Shelf” is an attempt at creating a tradition for our family that is magical and fun, but that has no ties to religion. Even though my family is atheist, we choose to celebrate Christmas and remember that it is still a holiday for giving.
In my online life I continue to be amazed by the joy that Dirty Diaper Laundry readers bring to me. I am thankful for all of you and for the advertisers and sponsors who keep it going. I am truly fortunate that I am able to stay home with my boys and do what I love.
2012 is going to be another great year for DDL and I can’t wait to bring you along for the ride.
