As the hour draws near, my kids are on full sensory overload from the anticipation of Santa’s arrival. As the minutes pass, my sanity wanes and I find myself wondering if other families are experiencing a similar phenomenon…
Part of me just wants to get the holiday over with and purge this build-up of anxiety and stress my kids are feeling.
I love the holidays. I really do. My kids love the holidays as well but they get so easy overwhelmed and once that happens, we are miserable. While this does make life difficult for me as a parent, I do think that it’s worse for the kids because they are actually the ones going through this.
Robbing them of their holiday memories isn’t ever my goal but what’s the point of them having the experience if it’s too much for them?
Do any of you ever request that Santa makes his stop at your house early, so your kids can finally begin to unwind and relax? If so, how did you go about it and what did you say?
