Just wondering how all the new Mama's out there are handling the holiday season. So far is has been going well for us, but we have also not made a big production out of anything. I come from a family where little traditions are a BIG deal, my mother was the queen of birthday celebrations, any holiday was special and unique and as kids my brother and I could always count on certain things, getting a new ornament, pancakes for breakfast, cutting down a tree with a birds nest, etc.
Needless to say I felt a lot of pressure to re-create this with my own family, and it always felt stressful, so I decided NOT to, I don't really like the added pressure. We got our tree today and my DH and I had thought we would do the whole big go into the woods with the sled and cocoa and cut down the tree and you know what we ended up buying on on the side of the road and decorating it in our pajamas with one year old DS chewing on ornamanets and it was PERFECT. I'm sure as our family gets older we will make more traditions but for now this feels good.
Anyone else taking this approach?
