Confessions of a Stressed-Out Mom and a Holiday Miracle Saver
Confessions of a Stressed-Out Mom
Raise your hand if you’re tired of being the stressed-out mom over Christmas. I just want to spend time enjoying my kids, not worrying about all the holiday shopping I need to do. I will confess that this holiday season I’m lacking on everything from house cleaning to cooking. I mean the kids are eating, but they may not be the best choices. I hear them yelling, “Mom can I have Pop Tarts for dinner?” And I’m like sure go right ahead as I continue to shop online narrowing down my holiday list.
And let’s talk about wrapping all of those gifts. In my mind I want to be that mom that wrap all the presents so pretty with the perfect little bow, but in reality it’s a hot mess. I’m just lucky that I have Christmas wrapping paper and I don’t care that it’s from 5 years ago. Let’s just say they are lucky it’s getting wrapped or thrown into a holiday bag.
I have put some thought into this holiday season and I have concluded some things. This holiday season I’m saying goodbye to the stressed-out version of myself and hello to the nice-easy-going-relaxed version. If only there was a way to make this the best Christmas ever not spending countless hours stressing over the holiday.
