I really love this story, and that last paragraph was exquisite.
I enjoyed your story. I felt like I was right there in the home, smelling the burnt hot chocolate and seeing the other sites and sounds. Liked the ending.
Very sweet ending, and realistic with the way things are in most homes on Christmas morning! I had to laugh at Mom prodding Dad awake to read to the children--nodding off is a Dad's routine on Christmas day, isn't it?
I loved the ending too! Well done, my are definitely blossoming in your writing skills!
This is a good story - I could feel the mom's frustration. And I love the last paragraph! Inspired.
What a realistic look into one families chaos after Christmas morning. :)

I also loved the ending.
