“T’is the season to be jolly, tra la la la la, la la la laaaaaaa :-)
Oh, who am I kidding. We’re day two into the holidays and already the fighting between the two of them has started already. Who had what toy first, blah blah bloomin’ blah.
This weeks Britmum’s blog prompt asks us to write a ‘How To’ guide to surviving Christmas. If anyone has any more suggestions, feel free to add them.
How to survive Christmas with your sanity (and your hair) intact….
-Lots of Christmas dvd’s, so if they are being exceptionally rowdy and playing that infernal wrestling game with each other that ALWAYS ends in tears, peace can be restored by sitting them down to watch Mickey’s Christmas Carol or Raymond Brigg’s Father Christmas.
Restore your inner peace with a cup of tea

letting them out for a daily breath of fresh air
Having two over excited little boys is just like having a pair of giddy puppies…. to keep them chasing their tails inside and going berserk make sure they get a good run in the park or outside every day to let off all that boisterous steam… or you’ll end up bananas.
Just a pity you can’t get away with putting them on a leash though. Oh well….. *
Christmas spirits (no, not the clanking ghosts of Christmas tales)
Well, it is Christmas. Buy yourself a nice bottle of something you never usually buy, and have a nice little glass of it when they’ve gone to bed. T’is the season to be jolly, after all.
This year I think I’m going to go the route of buying a nice bottle of Taboo. Haven’t had that since I was about 18, so a nice nostalgic slurp of that will do the trick. :-)
Merry Christmas and hope you all keep relatively sane!
*disclaimer* – no child has ever been put on a leash. Although it’s tempting when they run about screaming and shouting with giddiness like headless chickens and charge off everywhere :-)
