You know the song “We Wish you a Merry Christmas?” It goes like this:
“So BRING us some figgy pudding.
And BRING some right now.
We WON’T go until we get some.”
The words to this Christmas song have always fascinated me. As a child, I imagined sinister carolers camped out on the porch & our not even knowing what “figgy pudding” meant or where to get it.
Why is this image so disturbing? I think because it is the heart & soul of passive aggressive behavior. Unfortunately, parents use passive aggressive techniques against each other while navigating Christmas parenting time schedules.
Court is not meant to micromanage lives. Don’t get so caught up in getting “some piggy pudding” that you camp out until you get what you want.
