Christmas Eve in the Lost and Tired house had turned into a stress filled, migraine inducing nightmare.
We ended up staying at home because of the days events.
I decided that we need to save as much of the Christmas Eve experience as possible and not let it be ruined by frustration over behavioral issues.
How did I accomplish that?
We ordered pizza for dinner, watched cartoons and straightened up the house so Santana Clause could safely navigate the house tonight. That was actually Gavin’s idea. The house is in good shape already but I will always take the help in keeping it it that way.
The goal is to get the kids in bed shortly and make sure Santa has plenty of uninterrupted time to finish his job tonight.
Right now everyone is working together to get ready and I call that a victory. It’s a definite improvement over the meltdown filled day we were having.
I hope all of you have a peaceful night. My sincerest wishes go out to you for a safe and happy holiday. 🙂
