1. Allow them to have whatever cereal they like for breakfast with toast.

2. Let everyone stay in their pjs (or mismatched outfit of their choosing – see pic) all day.

3. Make tacos for lunch.

4. Let them skip naps for the day to help put up the Christmas tree and decorations.

5. Make corn bread, chicken, and beans and rice for dinner.

6. Watch a few Michael Jackson videos

7. And to top it all off… rocky road ice cream for desert.

Everyone went to bed and I did not hear a peep out of them! Usually someone needs water, or has to pee, or needs another hug, or something… anything to get out of the bed! Today? Silence!

Now Mommy is exhausted, but having happy kids is worth it.
