After the boys ran downstairs to see their gifts, my middle son declared with joy, “Somebody must have been really good this year!” I couldn’t agree more!
Over the last few days, we had many family gatherings including church and Christmas dinner at Grandma’s house. My son was such a trooper. He had a few moments of feeling overwhelmed, but after taking steps to distance himself on his own, he was able to join back into the fun. Honestly, he did much better than I expected, I was pretty proud of him for being so flexible with his lack of sleep, tons of excitement and a few too many cookies.
Tomorrow we’ve planned a day of rest, our hope is to recharge our batteries with a family jammie day and hopefully a lot of cuddling on the couch. I have to admit, even this mama bear is feeling worn out.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
