Tots100 and little tikes are hosting a blogger giveaway to relive your favourite Christmas memory.
For my favourite festive memory there is one that sticks out, Christmas 2012. In the space of 6 months I had given birth to Jack, spent some time in hospital due to problems breast feeding, lost my Dad and moved house. So that Christmas morning was one filled with many emotions but my focus was on my boy.
At only 6 months old most of Christmas went over Jacks head but he enjoyed opening his presents (just the opening mind) and staring at the sparkly Christmas tree.
Santa had been very kind to little Jack, with a brand new baby walker, a massive pile of books, a big snuggly teddy bear and lots of other goodies nestled under the tree.
After so much stress it was wonderful to spend the day helping Jack explore his new toys, his cheeky grin washed my troubles away, even if it was only temporary. It really helped to put so much focus into making Jack’s Christmas the best it can be and make all his dreams come true. Two Christmases later and I am still on my mission to make his Christmas a magical one.
We spent the evening snuggled up in our new pyjamas watching festive movies and if I am honest I was a little sad when J’s bed time rolled around but my little boy was all tuckered out and didn’t need much fuss on his journey to dream land.
As a child we never want Christmas to end and that Christmas neither did I.
Do you have any Christmas memories that hold a special place in your heart?
