This post hits right in my working mommy guilt spot. I am horrible at the in between holidays. It is not that they aren’t important! It is just that I don’t have time for the special details that I like to add.
When I say in between holidays I mean anything after Christmas and before Thanksgiving. When it comes to November and December I am all over the tradition building, memory making fun. July 4th, Valentines Day and St. Patty’s Day…. etc…. have me running for the hills.
I look at cute craft ideas and I usually buy a couple of decorations, but they either don’t make it up or the craft is half squeezed in between swim lessons and nap time. Occasionally, we do make time for a good old fashioned cook out, but missing are the cute plates and napkins.
Insert Mommy Guilt! I know it shouldn’t matter. So I am giving us all permission to let the little things like paper plates go. As long as we discuss the importance of these days (especially the ones honoring our soldiers) with our kids then I think we have hit a home run.
What do you do for the holidays. Do have simple family traditions that are easy to implement? If so, please share!
Peace, Love and Happy 4th,
