Especially during the holidays!
Something occurred to me today when I was talking to a friend about keeping our cool through the very busy, very hectic Christmas season. She has a new baby at her house and is finding the need to keep it mellow far outweighing the need to make fudge and wreaths. It reminded me of something that my husband told me a while ago (I think during some box mac and cartoon riddled period of our lives). First, you have to make the kids who will eat the cookies. Later, there will be time to make the cookies. This is so, so true. This Christmas is not the only one. You can always start earlier, do more next year.
