I always imagined that I would be the “have it all together mom,” but parenting humbles you pretty quick. In fact, these days I’m lucky if I remember everything off my list when I’m at the grocery store. Life happens, right?
Things get especially tricky around the holidays. Not only do we need to find the perfect gift for everyone plus tons of presents for under the tree, but there’s so many other things going on: holiday concerts, class parties, work parties, family visiting, etc. It all gets a little overwhelming and can sometimes take away from the fun of it.
Well, this mom took all of that into consideration, got her shit together and has all her Christmas shopping done and only spent $550!
