Our family doesn’t have a fancy advent calendar, but every year I buy these cheap chocolate advent calendars. My children LOVE them! Another bonus: the chocolate tastes terrible, so I’m not even tempted to sneak any.
On Saturday I slept in a bit while my husband was up with the kids. My three-year-old, Mase, got an early start to his mischievous morning. He managed to get his chocolate-loving mitts on the calendar belonging to his younger brother, Dax. Mase then hid in Dax’s crib and devoured most of the chocolate. Apparently this can’t be done without covering the crib and wall with chocolate. Here’s a small glimpse of the crime scene.
I, of course, gave Dax my three-year-old’s calendar. So now, EVERY DAY, Mase has to watch the other kids get chocolate. He needs to learn this lesson, but it has become the saddest little tradition to watch. Thankfully, only 18 more days of suffering to go!

And I may be the only one, but if you’ve ever had a tradition gone wrong, please share!
Also, just a reminder to link-up your Jan-Mar review posts starting this Friday!
