Biz and Theresa realize that our childhood memories of the holidays combined with our visions of what we want our kid’s memories to be makes for one bad tasting fruit cake of guilt. The sensation that time is fleeting is really ramped up over the holidays, and we try to take a step back to focus on what is really important…presents for us! Plus Biz knows they aren’t doing it at her and Theresa has a house check in.
