about this story

Every kid has their favorite things. Some kids like ponies, while some like hot wheels. Every kid dreams to have the best things in life. Our parents used to spoil us to make us feel like we were on top of the world. They would take us on vacations to spend time with us. It was always the best thing, but every kid had one day that they could never wait for and that’s Christmas!!! When we were kids we wanted the coolest things from Santa. We would make lists and send them off hoping to get what we wanted. We baked Christmas cookies the night before and set out glasses of milk for Santa. Waking up the next morning so anxious to open presents. We always thought that getting presents was the best thing in the world, but once you hit that certain age it all changes. It turns into responsibility. Parents rely on us to make money by getting a job. They rely on us taking care of siblings and chores around the house. By the time you're 16 you have a car and you can pretty much go wherever you want. Watching our little siblings feel the same way about Santa that we did brings back memories but we can’t do anything about it. All the memories fade away and growing up becomes harder. You get through high school and you decide what College you want to go to. Everything changes. You don’t have enough time for everything like you used to. On breaks you go back and visit family for the holidays. Getting older creates new memories with new people doing new things. We don’t remember all the things from our childhood but our parents do. Whether it's embarrassing moments or fun times. Everything matters in their eyes.
