But the kids love it. There has been some learning activities involved as GiJu numbered all the gifts. Callie can pick any present she wants. Sometimes she can identify the number but more often than not her job is just to find the matching number for Diego. She can do it really well!
It's been exciting to watch them open and see how excited they are. Diego didn't quite get it at first. We would rip the paper and Diego would try to put it back down to make it perfect again. Today was the first day I saw him say open and rip his own paper. I think all this practice will make him ready for the big day.
AND one other positive is that the kids have to use self control. All the presents are under the tree but they cannot open more than 1 a day. They haven't even asked or taken more than one. It's rather impressive considering most people have to keep ornaments away from their kids on the tree never mind wrapped presents.
