    My two year olds X-Mas

    Okay, so when you have a small child the first x-mas or two (depending on age) is kinda hard for them to get into it because they have no clue on what is going on.

    Well my son is 2 years 4 months (give or take a couple days) and I was thinking this year it is on for the little tike because he is getting older. I was wrong, in fact it was the most breath taking event of my year....

    We gave him his first present and he quickly opened it and loved it because it was a dinosaur/truck set. He wanted to play that moment. I tried to take it away so he could open more and he wouldnt have it. After a few minutes, I pry it away and get him to open so more, this time he opens a POLICE, firefighter, ems book and puzzles. My boy no longer wanted anything to do with presents, he only wanted to sit and read his book about P, F, E.

    I was impressed in the fact that he was not greedy, I am sure that will change in the years to come. For him it was all about the one item he opened and until we took it away, he didnt want anything else. Needless to say we gave up on getting him to open everything, we still have a pile of unopened gifts under the tree.

    I think this moment of his unselfishness wiped away all of his great terrible two's moments of the year so far!

    Those are memories that you will hold dear to you for your lifetime. Enjoy every moment.

    A moment forged in time for your advanced age. Cherish each action and hold onto all that made you happy, after all Christmas morning is for the children. Great to have you share with us. Thank you!
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

    I thought you were gonna say "he threw the toy aside, and spent the next 3 hours playing with the box!"

    I know what you mean. It was like that through my boys 3rd christmas. Now this was number 4, and let me tell you, it was search and destroy, open everything even if it wasn't his. LOL

    My daughter was much the same as your boy, she's 1 and a half.

    Only thing I would have done is discourage the reading of the firefighters and ems books.
