Why you shouldn't peek at your presents, a true story.Everything I write is the truth.Exposing my abuser would have gotten me a beating if I was younger.

Anyways this is a christmas story, It was me that peeked.

You see, I was doing my chores, When I got under mom's bathroom sink. I was going for glass cleaner and found this box.It had my name on it. I wanted a wa pulled a fast one.

tch really bad. I was just a kid.

So I very carefully, knowing the whole time I was doing wrong.I couldn't help myself. It had my name I just had to see if I got my watch. I thought I had wrapped it back the way she had it,apparently I didn't put it back right.

Mom found out. Rather than yell at me , my mom did something else. I'm walking around thinking I get my watch yippee!

Christmas morning comes and mom hands me the box, the box my brand new watch was in. I'm so excited I now have my watch in my hands. I ripped it open and to my horror, was the dumbest looking frog I ever saw. So because I peeked and my mothers abusive towards me. She enjoyed getting me tho one of my brothers peek too. There's that favorite thing in my family. My mom was , always has been mean.

So I was broken hearted and what had happened to the watch?I know I had a lesson to learn, not to peek.I have never peeked again.

I did get the watch on New Years Eve.I also learned a valuble lesson. Never ever peek. you might just get yourself a stupid looking frog.

Merry Christmas! No peeking!

    I thought about letting my boys open at least one on the night before. But I kind of like being awakened early on Christmas morning by anxious kids.

    I used to hide my childrens gifts at a friend house. They couldn't peek there.

    We didn't celebrate Christmas until the last ten years or so, so there was no Santa for our kids. We had Family Day and still had lots of gifts and great food, and the kids never felt slighted in any way. I say, Jess would have peeked but KT wouldn't have! LOL

    Our kids use to unwrap their gifts when we were gone and then wrap them back up. I knew but acted like I didn't. They ruined their own Christmas by looking I figure that was enough punishment.

    Like you said you were just a kid.
