Birthdays…the upcoming holidays…it all has the potential to stress out even the coolest of chicks. It is my motto this year to “slow down and enjoy every minute of it.” How to slow down one may ask? Well take a deep breath and realize that this is all supposed to be fun and enjoyable. There! I said it! Sometimes it may feel as if the maternal unit is responsible for the holidays and all it entails as we tend to hold our breath and try to ensure that magic is had by all. Realistically, we can have the occasional sigh, and mumble words under our breath, but let’s consciously monitor our inclination to emit curse words….okay? Okay!

Yet again another end to a long week…TGIF. Kids home from school. Backpacks thrown haphazardly in front of the door. I’m sure they ran for the door at full speed, barging into the kitchen and eagerly lunged into the pantry for another piece of leftover Halloween candy . I come home, reminding them for the umpteenth time to pick up bags and wash their grubby paws prior to their afternoon snack. Rather, my kids, prefer introducing a conglomerate of bacteria into their digestive tracks for a mere sugar filled treat. Clean the litter box and take the trash out. Feeling productive, I decide it’s time to take a load off, and I park my bumper on the chaise for a quick perusing through the mail. The stress of the jam packed week is starting to melt away….Ahhh. I reason with myself that I should continue to complete several chores prior to uncorking a bottle of Cabernet to commemorate the end of the week. Rather, fell victim to temptation yet again.
