Our first Advent Calendar …
I never had an Advent Calendar as a kid. Not sure why … but I was super excited when one came in the mail as an early Christmas Present for Emmett and Fletcher from auntie + uncle. I had thought about buying one but hadn't … I think Auntie Sherry read my mind!
We filled it before Thanksgiving and hung it up.
Advent Calendar Mistake #1: Don't hang it so early.
Emmett spent the next four days staring at it. Potentially just imagining the taste of the little Hershey Kisses in his mouth.
And when December First rolled around … he ran out of bed, straight downstairs to retrieve the day's chocolate.
Advent Calendar Mistake #2: Include more than just chocolate.
Now our daily discussion, can he have his chocolate kiss before or after breakfast.
