Today is Christmas Eve and the sun is low in the sky.  I am thinking of all of you and want to wish you a very happy holiday in whatever way you choose to celebrate. Christmas is always high excitement for children and adults too.  Things don’t always go as planned.  A skipped nap, a long car trip, too many relatives, new surroundings, overdose of sweets, a winter cold, can create dis-regulation in our kids and ourselves.

Be patient – with both.  And expect your child to act his/her age with all the developmental pros and cons that comes with it.

Love them, love yourself, love your in-laws.  Have a wonderful day!

“There is no ideal Christmas; only the one Christmas you decide to make as a reflection of your values, desires, affections, traditions.”  Bill McKibben
