Why Sandra Bullock's Kids Only Get '3 Small' Gifts At Christmas

Sandra Bullock is one of those people who just seems to get it. 

Like I don't even know her, but I feel like I would listen to the advice she has to give blindly. She is down to earth, she seems like an incredible mom, and I mean, she's Miss Congeniality! What's not to love.

And her latest comment about how she celebrates Christmas with her kids will make you stop and think for a moment. 

Because Sandra revealed that Christmas for her kids - Louis, 8 and Laila, 6 - is just "three small gifts." Because it's aaall about perspective at times like the holidays.

Sandra explained that Christmas is typically “really, really overdone because I overdo it, and then I panic that I didn’t do enough, and then I get more, and then everyone else has overdone it.”

But this year she decided to make a major change to the "overdone" culture and simply "stopped." And her kids understand!

“We just stopped because there’s so much happening in the world where people don’t have anything. And we said, ‘Why don’t we just make this about other people?’ And they were amazing about it.”

Sandra has explained in the past just how "over doing it" she has gotten. In 2015, during her first holiday season with both Louis and Laila at home with her, she revealed that she liked to dress up as Santa and sneak outside so that there was a Santa sighting on Christmas Eve.

But Louis totally caught on to her, so that year she had some tricks up her sleeve:

“Louis is onto me that I always have to ‘walk the dog’ when the family has their sighting... So I ordered the XL Santa suit this year and will pass the torch to my brother-in-law so I may watch Laila see him for the first time.”


Things may be a little different for she and her family this year, but you know they're still definitely going to be fun. How could they not be with Sandra as your mom?
