Since the beginning, it’s been just me and Bean. Being a single parent hasn’t been easy, but our village has never let us down. Every year, we show our appreciation with a Christmas card. Taking family photos at Christmastime has become one of my favorite holiday traditions and now that Avon is in the picture, well…actually, that’s still to be determined.
I mentioned using a photo of the three of us for this years Christmas card to my mother and she advised against it, since one, we aren’t married and two, I also send cards to Bean’s paternal family. I can understand her point, but everyone I plan to send a card to us well aware of our almost two year relationship and our intentions for it, including Bean’s paternal family. Plus, its 2018! Marriage isn’t required to be a family. They say mother knows best, but what say you? Is it acceptable for a dating couple to send out a Christmas card together or should Christmas cards be reserved for engaged couples at the very least?
