Twelve Days of a Mom's Christmas

Christmas is my favorite time of year, but let's face it...as a Mom it is so stressful, busy, and chaotic!

Today I was sitting by the fire, taking a look at my beautiful Christmas tree and noticed a few decorations that were not Mom approved. My kids had their own definitions of decorations, as most kids do!



Taking it in, I thought about the 12 Days of Christmas, and how different it might have been if written by an exhausted, stressed, sleep deprived Mom.

So, in honor to all the Mom's out there who are fighting back the tears and nervous break downs that come with making the season bright for your little ones, this is for you!

I hope you enjoyed it, and please don't forget to take some time to yourself this season.

Decorations, parties, gifts, and surprises are all fantastic for the kids. But the magic of the season that they will remember forever?

That magic comes from time spent as a family, with the ones you love, the memories you make. That is what they remember the most! 

May this Christmas season bring magic and wonder to all of us!
