Last night was a milestone in my life. I brought my son to see Santa Claus for the first time. I ALMOST cried but I managed to hold back my happy tears.

My mom used to take my siblings and I to see Santa every year...until I was 18. It's something I didn't really appreciate until recently. It was actually kind of annoying from about age 10 until 18. Now, I wish I wouldn't have put up such a fuss about it.

Being a mom has totally changed my perspective on so many things in life. I hope that my son Charlie will take pictures on Santa's lap until he's 18 like I had to. Last night was the first of many trips to see Santa. My little boy is growing up so fast! I've got all of those Christmas feels right now!

Merry Christmas from my family to yours!
