Things Moms should do before Christmas (Part 1):
Christmas is usually the most busy time of the year not only for business owners but especially for moms.
I’m just going to jump right into the list.
I’m doing this because I am currently cleaning up the house because I’m expecting guests over the Christmas holiday so I decided to go through my closets and the children’ closets, kitchen and toys.
I will be donating toys, clothes, shoes, bags and other items I know we haven’t used in the past 6 months or more.
So far so good, I have one bin bag full. Not giving up.
Let me know in the comments if you would be doing this!
- TAKE TIME TO HANG OUT WITH THE KIDDOS.
This season can be very hectic. We moms can easily get caught up in so many activities that we don’t spend time with our children. Get creative and think of ways you can have fun with them.
My daughter loves anything Christmas. I got her this donut from Tim’s. She enjoyed it while we had a lovely mom and daughter time.
What will you be doing with your kiddos this season?

PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR WORDS.
Words are like seeds.
“Negative seeds bring negative result and
positive seeds bring positive results”.
It is important that we as moms pay attention to what we’re saying to our family and ourselves.
The end of the year can be very tricky- most times we get stressed out by unrealistic expectations and the hustle of the season that we don’t realize the negative words we are saying to ourselves and our family.
Pay attention to your words and start sowing great seeds into the new year (with your positive words).
- YES YOU CAN FIX IT. To be honest it has been a while I assembled things in the house – I have other roles I fulfil. LolThis week I to assemble this furniture and as I opened up the box, there were so many bits and bobs that I was immediately discouraged but I told myself –“Imagine the end product!”
“You can fix this!”
I don’t know what your week is currently like or what the year has been like for you.
Well, ask yourself this:
“Am I overwhelmed with the bits and bobs?” “Can I fix it?”
“Can I see the end result in my subconscious mind?”
…I am rooting for you MomLeaders!!!!
- BE YOU. Very key especially during this season. You are probably seeing old friends or family and you feel the need to be “perfect”.
It is okay to clean the house, move things around and dress up when you have guests or when you attend a family function.
But remember – Please be you! Don’t give in to the pressure of presenting a false version of yourself.
So, these are my top 5 tips for Christmas! watch out for Part 2!
