So I have kind of missed posting about a few holidays.
Holidays are so much fun with kids, yes I agree, but at the same time as the mom of a kid I feel so much pressure on holidays.
I way did not realize how much time thought and energy my mom put into every holiday. She never went over the top but she always made them special and nice.
I love these "Little Miss..." books! I have made it a tradition to get one for Bridget every gift holiday. I am sure I love them more than she does right now, but I have forced them on her enough that I am confident they will be her favorite books.
St. Patrick's Day
(We actually didn't do anything for St. Patrick's Day but I took this picture that day so it kind of counts.)
As a mom I am finding I just want to raise grateful children.
I want them to be happy with simple holidays.
I want us to remember the reason why we celebrate holidays anyway.
And mostly, I want us to fill our house with memories instead of things on holidays.
The whole thing is a balancing act and I am learning with each subsequent festivity.
