Surviving ‘Til Christmas Morning

It is a few more days before Christmas and I bet a lot of the little ones are quite excited to open all their gifts and presents on Christmas morning. So while entertaining your tot who is mulling over whether Santa will bring him his secret Christmas wish this year, and apart from being incredibly busy, what else keeps you occupied in between shooing the kids from sneaking under the tree while no one’s looking to peek at one of their gifts? Updating you blog or staying online late at night to keep abreast with current events? Or online bingo sites perhaps?

If you are a full-time working mom who keeps a healthy balance between a 9 to 5 job and running your household, chances are you are probably swamped by now. Since there are still a number of things to worry about after having finished your Christmas shopping and wrapping all your entire brood’s gifts, a major headache is probably underway. There are probably numerous children’s Christmas parties to attend to which you have to insert to your already-full itinerary. Or you most definitely have got the Christmas Eve dinner to worry about, too. Before you go bonkers on deciding which food and meal to prepare or which dessert to serve your annual guests, maybe you can take a few breather and escape to a brief and quiet me-time, just to unwind and relax. You might find respite in one of those online games, just try not to be that much competitive lest the otherwise harmless and something-just-to-pass-away-the-time activity turns out into another chore you have to finish.

Surviving the Christmas season while raising children is a quite feat and you can get away with flying colors as long as you stay on top of the situation and refuse to be overwhelmed by it. Organize, make a list, delegate if you must. Am sure you will always find a better way of doing things and going your way around.

    Hi Yami! Thanks for the comment you left on my blog :). Sayang di pa tayo nag-meet in person. Sick ako nung wedding ni Fedhz, tapos ikaw naman ang sick nung bday ni Sean.

    Have a merry Christmas!
