My Christmas Eve dilemma

Today's 100 words:

When I became a mother, I think that my brain's reasoning portion was removed, and I lost all my ability to make even small decisions. Case in point: tonight's 1.5-hour-long Christmas Eve service begins at 11 p.m., and I've been debating whether we should go. It seems like such a late night for the kids, and when I think of all I still have to do after they go to bed, I feel exhausted. Still, I want my kids to understand our Christian faith and the true meaning of Christmas. I'm sad the service isn't earlier.


  1. That is so, so late. Li'l D would be miserable if we tried to take him to anything starting that late, a.k.a. "four hours past bedtime."

  2. I agree. It was a hard decision, but I decided to stay home with the kids, and hubby went by himself. I don't like missing church, especially a Christmas Eve service, but I couldn't imagine making the kids stay up so late.
