It turns out that I did jinx myself on the sleeping front. Just days after I last posted miss s got a little cold and her sleeping habits got all crazy. We're back to normal programming now and bed time has become less of a battlefield.
With a little sleep, my head has become a little clearer and I am looking forward to experiencing my first Christmas with my girl. Of course I've gone a bit nuts and am planning all sorts of things which are completely beyond my abilities.
We are going to do a few things that blend both mr k's and mine traditional family history but I also want to start something new, something that is uniquely us.
So I'm making an Advent calendar.
I'm not religious, did not have one when I was growing up, I don't sew but it appeals to me. In working with teenagers and children, one of the things I have noted time and time again is the importance of family rituals.
this kit on Etsy. The colours appeal to me and I love that it is a kit - any help is good. I think miss s will love pulling things out of the little pockets. I'd love to have a few more little traditions....any suggestions?
