I don't remember the holidays being insanely stressful as a kid. Guess that's part of being so innocent. As an adult especially now having a baby it seems you're stretched so thin.
I want us to start our own traditions now that we have Persephone, but for some reason we get caught up on who's feelings we may hurt by changing things. By the end of Christmas you feel relieved its over...
On a lighter note, I ended up with a lot of cute photos of Persephone from our visit with my mom and over the Christmas break. I'm so thankful for each and every gift we received (and the ones that Persephone received).
