Santa Claus came to town and dropped off presents for our Princess at not just our house but all of our relatives houses which meant A LOT of bouncing around from place to place. We made it though! C made out like a bandit let me tell ya. Being that she can't ask for anything just yet I did my best with offering family members useful things; diapers (sorry kid, we need 'em), sleep & plays (those things are fantastic), board books and not really much else. Doesn't sound like those things would take up my entire living room does it? Well, she got all the things I said, and then some.
I don't know about anyone else out there, but I felt more prepared for Christmas on November 1st than I feel right now, on December 22nd. So much thought has gone into making C's first Christmas special (yes, I know she won't remember a thing, but that's what cameras are for) that now that the day is almost here I don't feel prepared at all.
We are getting down to the wire! Christmas is only seven, SEVEN sleeps away! One of my favorite things about Christmas (and any holiday) are the sweets!
I'm not sure how I can say this sentence without sounding like an alcoholic but, prior to getting pregnant my tolerance for boozy beverages was way higher than it has been now, post-baby/post-breastfeed attempt. I have found that I need to ease my way back into drinking. I had a Blue Moon one night and legitimately felt drunk. Headache and all.
The holiday season is in full swing. In my previous post I talked about traditions you can start with your family. I left off an important meeting with the "big guy". Meeting Santa for the first time and then visiting him in subsequent years is a fun tradition for kids and parents alike. I have no problem admitting that I would happily visit Santa (without kids) and drag anyone I could get to agree to go with me.
I love a good tradition! I had some growing up and now that I have started my own family I am looking forward to passing on traditions to C and her possible siblings. While C is only going to be six months when Christmas Day rolls around it is never too early to start traditions!
Here is just a handful of examples of traditions you can start this year!
