Hello! I can’t believe Christmas is next week! I shared a cute graphic on my stories the other day that seemed to resonate with a lot of you. It was about how your kids won’t remember the presents or how clean your house was this Holiday Season but they will remember how they felt and how you made them feel. There isn’t one parent I know that doesn’t feel stretched thin this time of year. The planning, commitments, endless to-do lists and things that need to be completed is overwhelming. Our current situation with Griffin home from school in a cast is an added layer. There are a few things I do to stay sane this time of year and one of the is saying no. I say no to anything that doesn’t “fill my bucket” as Griffin says. If it isn’t going to bring me or my family joy…even if I’m on the fence, I say no! It’s so liberating, I promise!
The other thing I swear by is getting everything I can delivered. I did that prior to Griffin breaking his leg and truly became a pro during the pandemic but I value it even more with our current cast situation! We have the Walmart+ membership and it’s saved me in a pinch on so many occasions. Walmart+ is a membership that saves you money and TIME. The very thing we have so little of right now. The other day, Griffin and I wanted to have an impromptu baking day so I placed a Walmart+ order because I was short on a few ingredients. We ended up baking 4 dozen Christmas cookies that day to have on hand for the weekend when Grandpa and Grandma were coming over! It’s a life saver as a Mom to know that I can place a last minute order for something I forgot or something I need quickly (supplies for a school Holiday party!) and know they’ll be delivered to my door in a matter of hours for free ($35 order min. Restrictions apply). Walmart+ can also be great for any last minute gifts on your list. Get invited to a last minute Holiday gathering? Grab a last minute candle or box of chocolates to bring and have it delivered while you’re getting ready! You cannot beat the convenience and time saved.
