This season brings a lot of things! Fun traditions, great memories and busyness! With a preschooler and newborn the busy season just got busier! Lately I’ve felt like I can’t catch my breath. I’m constantly doing something from the minute I wake up to the minute I go to sleep 7 days a week. And even then I don’t accomplish everything I want to in a day. I’m trying to make the Christmas season fun and memorable for Avery all while I care for Brooklyn and tend to everything else I need to. It’s a little overwhelming doing so many things and thinking about what I need to do each day. And I’m not sure how to fix it because I feel like everything I do needs to be done so there’s nothing to eliminate. I’ve tried waking up a lot earlier than everyone to get some things done but with a newborn waking up to nurse in the middle of the night it’s too exhausting. The most important thing to me is that my husband and girls feel cared for and loved. Since I can’t really tell Brooklyn to just hang on a minute I fear that Josh and Avery are the ones missing out. I try my hardest to make sure that doesn’t happen but of course as a mom you always question if you are doing enough for your kids and husband as well. You only get a Christmas season once a year so I want to make sure I’m enjoying all moments and not just some of them. This blog was really more of a get things off my chest and vent kind of blog because I needed it. I am continuing to pray that God helps me to balance everything as well as gives me lots of energy to accomplish what I need to do. And any advice and tips are always welcome! If you made it to the end of the blog thanks for hearing (well reading) me out!

Start with a prayer each day – then add to it as you proceed through the day. Love those babies and if you don’t get everything done because you are caring for the basic needs of your family – feed them, clean them and love them (not necessarily in that order) you are doing just fine. Have grace for yourself. God has blessed you with a husband and children. If you are stressed over everything not getting done you might miss that blessing. Christmas is every day because we celebrate – EMMANUEL, God with us, EVERYDAY. Don’t get sucked into the pressure put on us from our culture. Your holidays can be very simple Cassy – think SIMPLE. In the future there will be other times. Enjoy each and every day. You are an amazing mom, daughter, sister, WIFE, and granddaughter. You are loved beyond measure just for being you!
