Ah the joy of having kids. I love being a mom but at times I cant help but remember how simple it was to be alone. No family to cook for, no kids to buy for, no " I have to decorate no mater what". It was easy to sleep in on christmas and party that night. It was easy to drop in at a friends house and grab a bite and help clean a little before we left. Now that Im a mother its mom lets decorate this mom lets decorate that mom lets watch this christmas movie, mom what are you cooking, mom can i help cook, mom thats only one cake why cant we make more, mom look at this snowman i just gotta have him I feel like between worka and home, Im dying with the holidays. I enjoy the holidays and dont get me wrong I love seeing my kids happy but when do i get a break? Do you feel like you run out of energy with the holidays?

Hey happy christmas changalgiardina. I fully understand you. Christmas is supose to be a nice warm and cosy time together with the family. But, christmas presents is what is destroying the spirit of christmas. You work hard, almost daily to be able to pay your bills and have some entertainment for your self and family. But, also christmas presents to right and left. I am so happy this year since my both kids are grown up, and my family finally decided no christmas presents this year. That has for shore been one less burdon to bear. And my spirit is happy and I for once like to have a nice christmas day with my family knowing we have the same spirits.
