I have NOT put off finishing up my Christmas shopping until the week of Christmas. And now the kids are out of school and I have 3 days and no idea how I am going to finish. Hoping the stores have “extended” store hours this week!
I did NOT completely crash yesterday after having Nate’s family over for Christmas dinner on Saturday. I would never totally space out and basically need a day in bed after planning and hosting a dinner for 10 adults and 8 kids. And I did NOT leave the dishes from the dinner until last night before I washed them. Besides just being gross, it makes your job twice as hard when trying to scrub dried broccoli off of a bowl!
I did NOT just say to my children “The next person that asks me for a piece of candy is going to get their fingers chopped off!!!” Really, I find much better ways to explain to my kids that candy at 9 am is just not healthy and that mom is a little stressed and the same question asked 24 times in 6 minutes might cause her to lose what last bit of sanity she has left. I would NEVER just shout out something that would make my kids run and hide in the other room!
