It's easy to get down from the press of the holiday bustle when everyone else has boundless energy and just don't understand why you don't. Take a little time and try to relax, explain, calm things down around yourself for at least a short time. It can help. And even though we feel like we let our children down if we don't meet their every
expectation, don't think they don't care how you feel even if they don't notice it on their own. Tell them, mommy's a little tired, can we do this in just a little bit? It's pretty important to me. They can be pretty great sometimes.
