Do you hear what I hear? Christmas Phrases.

Christmas vacation is almost over at our house and quite frankly, I’m ready for everyone to get back on the normal schedule.

But until then… let’s play a fun game.  Do you hear what I hear?

Christmas is HERE.

Merry Christmas friends.

Christmas is here.  It arrived.  (And I survived.)

It’s here… even though the Amazon man didn’t deliver.

It’s here… even though I’m still a few crafts short.

It’s here… even though there are spots in my house that aren’t as clean as I might wish.

It’s here… even thought I’m a few dozen cookies short.

Christmas is here.

And that’s OK. [Read more…]

Time’s up. Grab a Sharpie. It’s SHARPIE DAY!

Today is Sharpie Day in my house.  I’m working to have Sharpie Day declared a national holiday because it absolutely rocks.  I’ve decided that next year, I should celebrate Sharpie Day every single MONTH.

Not so coincidentally, it’s also the last day of school for my kids.  As of about three this afternoon, Christmas vacation is happening whether I’m ready or not.

Between my late-night craft-a-thon, the last day of school, and this morning’s total meltdown it’s pretty clear my family has reached stress level MAX.

The only thing that helps is Sharpie Day. [Read more…]

Three (more) gifts every mom needs

No matter what your Christmas budget is, there are a few gifts every mom needs (and can’t afford to do without!)

Last year, I shared one of my favorite Christmas posts of all time over a Mothering From Scratch as a MOMtor.  It was titled 3 Gifts Every Mom Can Give Herself.

You really should read the whole thing! In short, I suggested that you give yourself patience, perspective, and simplicity.  

(Those are still amazing gifts to give yourself.  They’re the perfect size and color and everything.)

This year, I’ve got three NEW gifts you should give yourself.   In my house, the very best gifts are the ones we pick out and give ourselves.  Before I order anything else pre-gift-wrapped from Amazon, I need to make sure I’ve given myself the very best gifts of all. [Read more…]
