Surviving the Holidays

I love Christmas, but it’s also exhausting. Especially when you have four children who turn into Holiday Werewolves for the entire month of December. So this week in my column I offer tips on enjoying the holidays without losing  your mind.

They get a little crazy at Christmas

After a weekend of late nights, two tree lightings and decorating our own tree, our kids are already running loopy… and there are still two weeks until Christmas.

It’s a tricky balance, trying not to be a spoilsport while still maintaining some semblance of order and sanity.

Survival often entails going with the flow and dealing with the fact that everyone will likely be out of sorts for a while. The highs are higher during the holidays, but the lows are lower too.
