Baby's 49th Christmas
My mother made that stocking for Christmas #3 or 4. I can't remember. I can't remember what I got either of those years. We lived in a rented house and I grew up watching black and white TV.
I have been telling the family that I was going to buy myself an iPod touch next year after I got my tax return. I told my wife NOT to buy one for me for Christmas because it was too expensive for just one gift. I told her that I was still reading up on reviews and that some people had told me to wait for the next generation because things like that are always improved.
The kids all said "screw that" and so my wife and my four kids split the cost and bought me one. I had no idea. I thought it was a bottle of cologne before I opened it.
My daughter asked me last week what Christmas gift I had received in my life that had made me the most happy at the time. What gift had just shocked and overjoyed me. I could not think of anything that stood out.
I can now.
