How I’m dealing with Christmas stress knowing I’m not going to see my husband over Christmas
At the moment of writing this, I’m actually calm for me. Calm for me is still a little stressed but it is manageable.
I really don’t think I’ll be ok on the day. I’m never ok on the day but this year I have that awful feeling that the kids will take it up a notch knowing that daddy idn’t there to back me up. Also the nephew is at my parents house this year so I have a feeling it will be completely bedlam. When my kids and my nephew get together it turns into utter chaos.
They’re 8,7 and 4 so I don’t think they’ll start a fire. However, they will scream, they will shout, they will tell tales on each other, they will hit, they will (probably) break some toys. Through all this I will try and remain calm and enjoy my Christmas and try to not let it bother me.
