While I really feel I have managed to get over the majority of my people-pleasing traits, at Christmas those feelings resurface. I don’t want to be the one known as the Grinch by not going here or there, but sometimes you have to stick up for what’s best for your family. Especially when you have a baby (or in our case a baby and a toddler!).

Our 5 Rules for Keeping Christmas Stress Free:
These rules have helped the last few Christmas days go off without a hitch. It’s just 1-day a year, that our family is homebound. The days before and after Christmas are crazy seeing those we won’t on Christmas day. Keeping Christmas day sacred makes it that much more exciting to look forward to and enjoyable.
Enjoy your baby’s first Christmas. Even if he or she is too little to enjoy all of the events the day holds, make the best and make memories.
