According to the Christmas countdown clock that has been nagging at me for days, as of this moment, I have 2 days, 9 hours, 5 minutes, and 21 seconds left to buy 4 more gifts, wrap 17 presents, bake 3 batches of cookies, clean up the mess from making those cookies, plan a holiday menu, shop for that holiday menu, fill stockings, and a handful of other things that are slipping my overwhelmed-with-all-things-Christmas mind at the moment.
And the closer it gets to the big day, the more I hear…
Mommy, how many days until Santa comes?
Mommy, I’m bored.
Mommy, will you play with me?
Mommy, Matthew’s touching me.
Mommy, NOW how many days until Santa comes?
So, I’ve been scrambling around in search of fun things for her to do, while I try to finish up all of my last minute preparations for Christmas morning.
Some of these things require some parental supervision and others are more hands off.
Hope they help you, because the hours are ticking by!
