So who else is working over Christmas? I'm working on Christmas Day this year for the first time since MJ was born. I'm working from 7:30am to 3:30pm, so my plan for the day is to get up early (by 5:30am) so he can open his stocking presents and main present from us before I go to work. I was going to eat breakfast with them, but I don't think there'll be time, and there'll be so much food at work there's no point. So DH and MJ will be feasting on smoked salmon and scrambled eggs in my absence and playing with his new toys until I get back. I'll then cook dinner and we'll open the rest of the presents afterwards before getting on Skype in the evening to talk to the folks in Europe.
How is anyone else managing work and Christmas day? Is it your first since kids or do you do it every year? MJ is quite vocal atm about how much he hates me going to work. I hope his new toys are a good distraction and he doesn't hate me for ruining Christmas by being absent for so much of it
