Our topic during lunch time was how not to be noticed by our children when putting the Christmas presents near their pillows.
Last year, it was hard to place their presents without being noticed by them.
They were so exited and couldn't fall asleep.
I went and slept first, but I also couldn't sleep because I had to finish my duty.
Mistakes would be unacceptable because I didn't want to shatter their dreams.
They believe in Santa Claus.
Then my son noticed the present in midnight and he wanted to get up.
I had to let him fall asleep again.
I was so tired!
(Our last year's Christmas Eve : http://a-o-j-m.blogspot.jp/2014/12/merry-christmas-my-son-cant-wait-for.html )
One of my colleagues answered my question.
"You should put their presents under the Christmas tree.
In my family's case, I told my children that I leave the lights of the Christmas tree on at the night
of Christmas Eve, so Santa Claus will know where he should put the presents.
There is a Christmas tree in the living room, so it isn't hard to put them there."
Other colleagues also agreed with her way.
"What a good idea!
My parents used to put presents for me near my pillow, but your way is better than mine.
It is easy for Santa Claus!"
I also told them how I buy their Christmas presents.
Since I wanted to consider what the best present for them, I ordered them on the internet.
But it is difficult for me to decide how I should revieve them.
When the delivery man comes to our house, my children are interested in what has been sent.
So I used the service for receiving the packages at the convenience store since last year.
It was very convenient, I could get them without being noticed by my children.
The other colleague said she bought presents at the toy store while her children were at school
and stashed them away until Christmas.
All of my colleagues are mothers who have older children than me.
They know a lot of things about children, so I often consult with them about my children.
