How many Christmas gifts should kids get?

During a brief moment of procrastination earlier this evening, I came across a question one of my dear friends posted on Facebook. The gist? She wanted feedback from other mothers about how many Christmas gifts they give their children over the holidays.

How many is too many? How few is too few? The question resonated with me because I feel like this is something most modern moms struggle with at some point.

I know my husband and I tend to go overboard every year, and then we always end up regretting it. For one thing, half of the gifts we get our kids wind up buried in a toy box or cast aside after being played with a handful of times. And then there is the more problematic issue of entitlement — we don’t want to raise children who come to expect being showered with more gifts each passing year.

Welcome to The Squeeze!

So glad you made it to this corner of the internet. Pour yourself a cuppa something cozy, snuggle in, and stay for a bit. Whether you’re looking for binge-worthy shows to watch, fun gift ideas, or adventures in motherhood that’ll make you feel less alone, I hope you’ll find some of it here.
