This time of year is just so much fun. I am a mom that has recently started working away from home for the first time. I particularly like the term that my sister used to describe me--"a mom that works" instead of a working mom. We have four children--2 boys and then 2 girls.
Sometimes I wonder what we were thinking having the girls, but we love them all just the same.
This time of the year we are just so busy. Sometimes I don't have time to blink not to say get clothes folded. And remember all of the kids' parties and special days at school just compacts my worries. I am a little sad sending my youngest to a sitter, but she is wonderful. My husband is completely supportive, even if my job takes me into his territory!
We try to make time to see all of our families, but we also want for our children to enjoy the tradition of Santa's arrival on Christmas Day. So it is open presences, eat cinnamon rolls, and rush off.
