In Brazil we have maids and nannies to help out with the house chores and the kids. Here, between this and that list I have to stop to feed the baby. Between this and that phone call I have to stop to change a very dirty diaper and to tell Natalie to pick up the toys.
As I’m not in Brazil, next year I’ll start planning Christmas and all right after Halloween. I’ll be the first to mail holiday cards. I’ll buy extra decorations and lights during the month of November so that on December 1st we can decorate everything at once. I’ll do all of this if I make it through this holiday season.
I must say, holiday season with a 3y.o. child and a baby, only with the infrastructure of a house hold in Brazil. I’m going crazy! It’s decorations to buy, house to decorate, parties to plan, food to make or buy or delegate, presents to buy… PRESENTS! I almost forgot about the presents! And this year we have a little girl who is counting the days till Santa comes to town.
