Being a parent is hard, mom, dad, doesn’t matter it’s just hard. Then add in the holiday season and it’s just harder. You want to make everything magical and perfect but circumstances get in the way.

This holiday season is going to be difficult and different. We can’t do things the way we have always done and it’s hurting my heart. My boys probably won’t notice the difference or really care that much. But it’s making me sad and I don’t know how to fix the sad.

The older they get, the harder it is to shop for them. The more expensive things are and life as we know it right now, is very expensive. The gift pile gets smaller but worse of all the magic seems to be disappearing.

I don’t know what to do to fix this. I know I sound silly but I just want it to be magical and special. My favorite part of it all is seeing the smiles on their faces when they open their gifts.

Deep down I know things change as the kids get older but I don’t want them too. Having a magical holiday season is all I ever really want. I feel like I’m failing as a parent which I know is crazy. But it’s how I feel and I’m having so much anxiety over this.

Anyways, I just needed to get this out there and remind all my friends with tiny humans to just embrace the magic. Take the pictures and start the memories. Sending all the love, magic and joy your way!

One response to “Expectations”

  1. I agree it’s gets very hard. I think this is one of the toughest parts of being a mom watching them grow. Our goal is to build them up and make them be the best they can be, then to sit back and watch them grow! I keep the magic alive in little ways still totally believing myself helps. Never allowing nonbelievers to bring those terrible thought around us! Denying in every way. Keep the magic Mamma even if it’s just for you!
