Ok. So I know I am not alone when I say this time of year I always tend to feel a bit overwhelmed. Some things good...some things not so good. I feel like I am on a constant time constraint to get it all done and honestly I sometimes wish I could just stop time and breath.
This year with a toddler I am feel particularly overwhelmed. From trying to teach her new things to making sure she has the most perfect second Christmas and all the while trying to get some sleep....Phew....it's just exhausting! Oh and Christmas trees? I'm pretty sure there were not intended to have with young children. It is a flippin full time job making sure that thing does not topple over with the girls crazy strength and determination!
I also just hosted my mom's surprise 50th birthday party. It was a huge success and a total blast but I am totally ready for a break. Luckily I have some pretty amazing aunts, dad and husband who were more then willing to help make the party a success!
And work....ohhh work. I'm not sure what is going on but there are some seriously sick kids out there right now. All I can so is please....if you do nothing else today...WASH YOUR HANDS! and your child's while you are at it!
Oh, and we have been dealing with a teething toddler...Yeah for us! I'm pretty certain it has been over a month since we have had a solid nights rest. When her doctor ever told us her other 3 molars were on their way....I almost broke down right then and there. I thought about begging him to keep her....just at night...until said molars were in.
Traveling, trips to the mall, wrapping presents, decorating....There is just seriously a lot going on.
Oh well....it is still my favorite time of year...with all the lights and smiles and music. I wouldn't trade this time of year. I will take the hustle and bustle just as long as I can do a little venting every once in awhile.
Do you ever feel overwhelmed during the holidays? How do you unwind? Me....do you remember my post on the missing bottle? Well I could sure use the bottle that I was hoping to find that day....Ok. Ok. Not a whole bottle people....just a glass and a good Christmas movie!
