What are you doing this weekend? My family and I are headed over the mountains tonight for a few days with the in-laws and a visit to a mall Santa Claus. The 4-year-old is going to ask Santa for a teddy bear and a tree fort, and “a new pot for Mama.” So I’ve got that to look forward to. With just two weeks until Christmas Day (is that even possible?), take care and stay calm out there, moms. Wishing you a peaceful weekend.
