clairebidwell Just dropped these guys at the airport, off with their dad to spend ten days with their grandparents in Ohio. And now I'm home by myself drinking champagne, listening to Willie Nelson, and baking a cake for Christmas dinner with friends. I can either sob about all this or just embrace it. (I'll probably do a little of both.) 14h

clairebidwell Christmas Eve tradition of drinking beer and building shit. Cheers to all of you who are doing the same. 1d
  •   addys_mommyy Don't I remember this pic last year with a kitchenette? 1d
  •   clairebidwell @addys_mommyy Yes, indeed. Shudder. That thing was a beast. 1d
  •   kksweda Haha I remember you doing that last year! 1d
  •   bridgetmerlot 1d
  •   mdobereiner So funny but I totally thought of you tonight and your building pic from last year (because we had to build the same thing!!) This year we managed to avoid building anything! 1d
  •   gilliembean We used to do a Christmas Eve party. Our neighbours would put their 4 kids to bed and being all their "shit to build" over to our house. They would bring their baby monitor with them! 1d
  •   kerryismyname I was up past 2am putting together a Barbie dream house 18h
  •   ashleyalexanderfurrow This makes me totally anxious! What happens if the kids walk out? Our setup was fast, but he's also little enough to scoop up if he came out. This parenting stuff is so tricky! And the tooth fairy! We are supposed to find a baby tooth under a pillow while they are sleeping?!? Who thought of this shit? 13h
