Christmas Confession

I need to confess!
When Ben was born, my mom began giving him ornaments. She continued doing it each Christmas. She started giving them to Sarah when she was born as well.
I was only mildly interested in the "tradition." I've put them up on the tree each year, but not with the greatest enthusiasm. But....

Now pay attention, this is where the confession part comes...


Mom was right!!!
This year the kids were old enough to be interested in Christmas decorating. Putting their ornaments on the tree with them was so fun. They were excited about each one and we talked about Bubbe, and why she chose the ones she chose.
So there you have it. You won't get it from me often, but I'm admitting it here and now...
Mom,
About the ornament thing...
Yeah, you were right!

That warms the cockles of my heart! So now I have the satisfaction that my daughter admitted I WAS RIGHT -- along with "warm cockles"!!!!! Does it get any better??????
I must admit, even I began to wonder if the kids ever took notice, but now I am convinced. So what kind of ornament will amuse a 17 year old -- just thinking ahead......;o)!!!! There's definitely a long way to go.
Mom/Bubbe
