I admit, before I had Micah, I had fallen into the rut that most parents of teens do. Since their belief in Santa had ended years earlier (I still believe, for the record), Christmas had lost a little bit of its magic. We still celebrated and had fun, but it just wasn't the same as when they were younger. When I got to stay up all night wrapping gifts from Santa, when Christmas was still a mystery, before the kids got to pick out their own gifts or just wanted cash. Back when the look on their sweet little faces and the sound of their voices as they shrieked with excitement made their jerk-ish behavior the night before, because they were so exhausted from staying up all night trying to catch Santa, oh so worth it. Back when a jolly old fat guy could cause a change in their behavior, so fast it would make your head spin. Back when there was still wonder in the world, back before they were teens. When I found out we were expecting Micah, it was two days before Christmas, four days before our ninth wedding anniversary. It was our very own Christmas miracle. I knew right then and there my life would never be the same and it wasn't. Since having Micah, all the magic that I thought was long gone, has returned, even with the older ones. All the things that Moms love to do, baking the cookies, playing tooth fairy, Easter Bunny, Santa, all of that, I get to do it again and I am gonna do the crap out of it!
