egg nog fog

6 Christmas celebrations
2 puking incidents

1 round of antibiotics

too many late nights

6 days of wonderful house guests

3 tired kids

1 vow to take Christmas Day off next year!

Happy Holidays were had by all, but if I didn't learn my lesson to simplify this year, I don't think I ever will. I have already promised my kids, who begged for it on the way home Christmas night, that we would spend next year in jammies, lounging, eating, assembling and playing. I think we need to enjoy a Christmas at home with toys and no responsibilities at least once before they grow out of this whole toy thing!

Isn't that the truth. Moms (and dads) with little ones seem to be dealt the brunt of preparations and party planning.

Too much to do and no real time to sit back and feel the joy! Always rushing to the next project, visit or RESPONSIBILITY... - the only responsibility should be relaxing with your children and feeling the magic of the season - without the pressure... next year... perhaps!
