Enjoying the holiday hustle — Mommy Daze

rsz enjoying the holiday hustleIt seems like the ‘holiday hustle’ is starting earlier and earlier each year. I’m usually a big advocate for waiting to start holiday decorating until after December 1st, but this year I decided we needed it earlier. Unfortunately, our family spent most of the Thanksgiving break attending various funeral arrangements for my husband’s Grandmother. It was an emotionally and physically exhausting week for all of us. To cheer everyone up, a few days after Thanksgiving we headed to the tree farm to bring home our Christmas tree. But what I wasn’t expecting was the ‘hurry to Christmas’ feeling that came home along with the tree.

Preparing for Kindergarten — Mommy Daze

rsz 1preparing for kindergartenI’ve always liked to be prepared, it’s just my personality. I’m pretty sure I was the only 8-year old around with a check-list. Now as a Mom, I feel like my need for preparedness has become a little obsessive. I was that crazy pregnant lady with dozens of baby books, trying to figure out a plan for every infant scenario that might occur. Now, I spend weeks packing for family vacations, again trying to think of everything that might be needed. And it’s not like we’re vacationing in the middle of the desert, miles from civilization, we’re talking luxury beach resorts here! But I just feel better when I’m prepared. I’m not much of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of gal.
