One thing I have struggled with the last few years has been Christmas. I will be the first to admit that I am a Scrooge. Between my mother dying and the falling out with my ex and getting pregnant, winter has never been a good time for me. I read a great quote the last few weeks and it has really got me thinking.

Wow. My sanity, joy and patience with my children is more important than any craft, game or trip I could do with them.
This is constantly something I struggle with as I feel often that I am never doing enough with them. Between working full time and being stretched thin with therapies and my extreme postpartum depression it turns it to a very rough season.
I have found some ways to reduce this year and just enjoy it.
After the 9th we are done with homework until after New Years. I want time to slow down and do crafts and baking.
