Am I the only one who is exhausted at the thought of one more activity to plan to keep the kids distracted? With the threat of possibly more quarantine, I have found myself adding games and activities to their Christmas wishlists to keep them busy in the winter.
Every parent this year is worn out and most certainly out of ideas.
Advent can be a big pressure season to check every activity off the list, get an Advent calendar, be creative. There is even more pressure to make it spectacular for our kids after the hard year we have all had. Do more, make more, be more.
The truth is it will all leave us more exhausted than we started and will likely make us miss the point.
We need to make the Advent of 2020 about simplifying and taking it slow.
