Awkward Mom vs. Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a...

Awkward Dad: Get off your blog and help me! This tricycle isn't going to put itself together!

Me: Well, if someone hadn't drunk an entire gallon of spiked egg-nog, he might not need so much help.

Awkward Dad: It's the holidays, just come here and help me. I think these directions are in Swedish.

Me: No, they are just upside-down.

May your Christmas be festive, fun, and just slightly awkward.
Not egg-nog drunk, forgot to buy ribbon, up until 3am putting together a tricycle that won't be ridden for 4 more months awkward.
Just thinking you are taking a picture when you are taking a video awkward.
That is the best kind.

The Awkward Family is taking off for a road-trip the day after Christmas and shall return, full of thrilling toddler tales of terror, in the new year. Merry Christmas, Readers! You are our best present!


  1. So did the bike get put together? Inquiring mind

    1. It did. Barely. With some minor swearing and some more spiked egg-nog!

  2. Merry Christmas to all of you!
