Once I finish up with this, we will begin negotiations for Christmas Morning Protocol:
What time can they wake us up? 7:30.
How about 6:30? Fine, 7:00.
6:45?? Sorry, 7:00 is my final offer.
Can they go into each others' rooms? Yes, if you're quiet.
What about watching TV in the living room? Nope.
Can they peek in the living room? Yes, but no touching the gifts.
What about stockings? Can they touch stockings? No. Peeking only.
Are we opening gifts before breakfast? Yes, but I reserve the right to pause gift-opening to fetch a cup of coffee.
Merry Christmas from Maine!
