So some folks are finding creative ways to preserve the pleasure of Christmas gifts without the expense and consumerism. One example is the Mother Letter Project. It's an effort to collect letters from mothers to mothers as a gift for one mother. I love this idea, and I contributed a letter.
You're doing great.
That's it. Because the worst thing (I think) about being a parent is the constant stream of self-doubt/criticism.
Hat tip to Sarah at Oakbriar Farm for this one - thanks, Hub!
