Taking Time to Cherish the Special Holiday MOMents with Sprout
Now that the holiday season is in full swing, things are getting more and more chaotic here by the day. My stress level is through the roof because I feel like I have 101 things to do each day, and the kids are not helping . I have two whole Christmas gifts purchased, and only 50 more to get. My Christmas cards are non existent, and are somewhere on my list of to-dos. There really is just not enough time in the day to carry out all my “grand” holiday themed projects…
I know there are a lot of you fellow moms (or caretakers) out there that are probably in the same exact boat as me. There is just so much to do in these next few weeks! I “ain’t got time” for meltdowns, or tantrums either! I swear, working from home certainly is not a huge help either because this is my biggest time for projects, and due dates. I have to admit, I have been relying on the Sprout Channel a bit much lately. My kids love Sprout’s kid friendly shows like Caillou, The Chica Show, and Berenstain Bears. I think my 4 year old may have even watched EVERY Caillou episode on Demand in one single day because..yes, it was on of them days.
Last week, I was attempting to take photos that could be somewhat usable for holiday greeting cards. I knew I had zero time for in studio portraits so me and my big bright ideas tried to take them at home #bigmistake. Not one of my kids even somewhat cooperated.. I don’t even care at this point. I am totally using these meltdown pics so that years from now my kids can see how much fun they were…not!
At the end of the day though, through all the holiday hustle, and bustle there are still those “Holiday MOMents” that take my breath away. The elfcapades, hand drawn Christmas cards, and the anticipation my kids have for Santa’s impending arrival really melt my heart. It is these magical holiday MOMents that make me truly appreciate that I do have three beautiful, happy, and healthy children.
So, do you have special Holiday MOMents that you want to share? Head over to the Sprout to share your priceless “MOMents” because despite it all, you know these are the times to cherish, and look back on. You bet that colicky baby, or chocolate covered toddler sure is not funny now, but in a few years these will make the best memories!
Not familiar with Sprout online, or the channel? With shows like Angelina Ballerina, Caillou, and Chloe’s Closet, there are plenty of educational shows, activities, and games to keep your little ones busy during the holiday hustle and bustle. My kids LOVE the Sprout Network, and so do I–check it out!
