Have you heard the "simple gifts" or "4-things" rule for parents?
"Something you want, something you need, something to wear, and something to read?"
Well, last year, I tried it, and while I did better than I have in the past, it still felt like too much. I had the 4 things I wanted to give the kids, and then there were all the things THEY wanted, and somehow I felt like Christmas would be a disappointment if they didn't get those things, so... yeah. Too much, again. (firstworldproblems, I know, but I'M TRYING.)
Anyway, this year, I've decided to put it on THEM. I want them to pause for a minute, look at their overly full bedrooms, review their amazon wishlists, etc, and edit their wishlists THEMSELVES. To make it a little bit more fun, I've made a... well, I guess it's kind of just a worksheet, but I'm hoping they'll be inspired.
If you click on the image above, I think it'll take you to my google drive so you can download it as a PDF. Hopefully.
Anyway, it looked a little blah to me, like, it's not pretty enough to blog about, so here's one all doodled and colored and filled out...
Mush snazzier, right? I don't know what that little star on the right is for, (other than navigating to Neverland), but I wanted it, and i figured it could just be decorated, or maybe an activity could g there (like, drive around and look at lights, or bake cookies, or whatever), or maybe some action they can take to spread cheer?
anyway, tag me on IG (@ramonarose) if you use it? xoxoxo and happy holidays!
