Alright, so last year I wrote a post about setting up a working moms experience list. To summarize its a list full of fun holiday stuff to do with your kids (as a working mom) so that your kids don't miss out on all that extra fun - you know what I am talking about, all those Pinterest worthy crafts, activities, and instagramable moments. Obviously as a working moms we have to manage expectations and carefully choose what things we really can do.
The list is still up on my site, and you can find it here. Overall the list is still great for this year (although I need to figure out where I was going with the Candy Car....must have been a craft idea that I just didn't get recorded). However, even though I was a working mom last year, and I am again this year, I realize that last years list is probably too overreaching for me this year so I'm paring it down.
Why am I cutting it back? Well, here's the thing, last year I was working slightly less than 35 hours a week average, which we all know isn't full time. I had a pretty sweet schedule that allowed for a lot of flexibility and had quite a bit of extra time. This year I am working a full 40, with a set schedule, and the Kid has upped her swim schedule. This all equals less time. Lots less time.
So I chose 13 of my favourite family activities, things I know I can get in through the month of December and invite you to join me (or just follow along on Instagram and Facebook) to see if I actually can do 13 Fun! Festive! Awesome! Things this Holiday season.
Best part of this list? There's no set date - fit what you want to do in on the days you want to do it (really like something like say.....go out for dinner? Do it more than once!)
Happy Holidays everyone!
