My kids get so excited Christmas morning, so to help me get more sleep and to get them to calm down a little, I place their stockings outside their bedroom doors. Then they can sit on their beds and open them on Christmas morning and I can get 30-40 minutes more sleep.
However, you are missing out on seeing the joy on your children's faces as they open their gifts. No amount of extra sleep would be worth it for me. (12/18/2004)
I am locking the hallway door when we go to bed on Christmas Eve so they will not be able to get upstairs (our bedrooms are down) until we get up too. They have a TV in their room so they can watch Christmas programs until we get up! That way I am posed with camera in hand! (12/19/2004)
