Me!!!! Yup it's me!!!!! Normally I love Christmas but this has been the crappiest year for our family ever!!! I spent 8 months laid up with a knee injury and just went back to work last week... The whole time I was off we had no problems keeping up on our bills but seems like the last month has been one thing after another.... Hubby's truck died so we had to get a new truck.... My van broke down so had to fix that..... Now our stove decided it was gonna take a shit last night! So now I gotta either fix it or get a new one!!! Really?!?! What next?!? So I had to sit the kids down this morning and tell them "sorry guys... Christmas is gonna be slim this year!!!" Took every thing I had in me not to cry til after they walked out the door! But I do have to say not one of them threw a fit or made any crappy remarks! I got a hug from each one of them and they said we understand! I promised I would make it up to them and I will! My kids seem to amaze me everyday! But I still feel like shit!!!!! Not looking for sympathy or any rude comments! Just wanted to vent!!!!

Im pretty sure the shittiest mom award would go to the ones that drown their children or put them in the microwave etc...

You are far from that.

You can have the normal everyday (lifes a pain in the ass) mom award.

For your kids to understand and give you a hug and say its okay I'm pretty sure that makes you a good mom since you're raising understanding kids!! Keep your head up, things will get better!!

You're not a shitty mom. At all. Just make Christmas fun. String popcorn. Everyone dress in pjs and have a big slumber party on the living room floor. Put up decorations. Bake. Involve the kids. That's where memories are made. As a kid I couldn't tell you what presents I got or the one thing I really wanted and didn't get. But I can tell what every tree looked like that we decorated, every Christmas carol wed dance and sing to, all the cakes and food wed make. That makes memories.

Kids are amazing, have them make coupon books for each member of the family,great way to use their imagination. We love coupon books. Bake cookies take them to neighbors/ fire stations, it is about giving to others.
