Sadly, I am dreading the fast approaching holidays because it has turned into a giant ordeal. Way too many places to go, way too many things to do, and I really wish it was going to be a lot simpler and more enjoyable. The easy answer would be to just say no to everyone, but unfortunately, that will not work. Brandon and I are completely stressed over our holiday schedule and know that next year, things will definitely have to be different. I do not want Brayden to be drug all over God’s green earth around holiday time.
But that is what we said last year, since we knew we would have a little one.
Granted, Brayden is young and won’t remember this Christmas, BUT I still feel like its important to start these traditions early. I hate running around trying to make everyone happy on Christmas. But how do you say no without hurting anyone’s feelings? It is stressing me out (even though I KNOW better) but I think its going to be high time we said no, and started some traditions of our own.
What are some of your favorite holiday traditions?
