Man is there pressure to make sure your child’s first holidays are memorable and special. Of course I had a million ideas and didn’t get around to doing shit.
I’m lucky my mother-in-law gave me this outfit or I wouldn’t have had anything for him to wear!
Like a true failure, I went shopping the day before Christmas eve and couldn’t find anything. I was lucky there was a random teether in the automotive section… that was Xaviers gift from us.
I like to think it’s his favorite gift. Here he is with Grandma (my mama).
My husbands mom is Jewish so we also got to celebrate Hanukkah. I thought ‘I should get some sweet pictures of Xavier with his menorah. I almost ended up taking a trip to the damn hospital. He’s fine. I just can’t do anything right!
My sad list of failures continues. We didnt get a tree.
We didnt send out Christmas cards or take Christmas photos.
I can’t imagine all the things I’m going to miss or not get to when I go back to work. How do people do it?! Seriously. I feel like there just isn’t enough time in the day. I was feeling so overwhelmed that I cried myself to sleep the other night.
I’m just glad I had a chance to catch up with family. I think that’s the main thing that matters. I head back to work January 5th. I’m going to get a few more days in with friends and family before then. I’m really looking forward to it.
I hope you had a lovely time over the holidays so far. Wishing you all that and more for the New Year.
