  • Speaking from experience over this past weekend, this topic hit home for me. As fast as I was wrapping presents and putting them under the tree, my 4 year old granddaughter was sneaking them off and unwrapping them. Even though I had told her the presents were for Grandpa, she was bound and determined to see what was inside. Needless to say my stress level went up!
