Christmas Game Planning

My husband, who is Mr."We Must Go Overboard On Everything Related to Christmas", spends a lot of time planning the events of Christmas morning so as to achieve maximum impact. In fact, he has been planning the presentation of Christmas for the last month. He's driving me just plain batshit crazy.

"Maybe we should move the couch over there so we can arrange Zane's presents more in a semicircle?"

"Do you think that we should have the presents wrapped and under the tree now, or should we wait until Christmas day?"

"What if we move the tree over to that side, so when Zane comes downstairs the first thing he sees are the presents?"

"We are going to have to go out and buy some more presents. The arrangement is lopsided."

"Where do you think we could find some foam board, so I can make some life-sized pictures?"

"Should we have the presents from Santa wrapped? If so, we are going to need a really big boz."

And so it goes. On Christmas Eve, Larry will stay up late, fussing, arranging the presents just so, posing everything to optimal effect, so that when Zane comes down the stairs on Christmas morning, he will have the 3 year old equivalent of an OMG moment.

And I love him for that. Even though he's driving me nuts. I'm not kidding about that part.
