And because I have both birth children and adoptive children
And because it's different for everyone
And because I want to write about it
What are your biggest challenges during the holidays? For you personally (but not asking for personal info) and for your family as a whole?
Eating all the wrong stuff (but I am making time to go to the gym)
Stress from the stress my daughter is under (delivering in less than a month and her doctor was arrested for possession of cocaine yesterday, living with husband's dad and step mom)
One child determined not to follow any of the rules and then acting like she doesn't understand them and being indignant at the consequences
Mega load of appointments, surgeries etc
Be sure to read my post about rejuvenating on my parenting blog HERE and let me know if you have any suggestions to add.
