It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…

From opening the next door of the advent calendar to Santa chat with your toddler, how are you preparing for Christmas with your family?

December can be a stressful time of year for parents with the pressure of preparing for the big day, bracing the Christmas crowds and juggling work with the kids but it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Mother&Baby office.

From lunchtime gift shopping and Christmas classics on repeat to scoffing homemade mince pies, the festivities are slowly taking over the M&B office – infiltrating our workspace as well as our family homes.  And that’s before we start getting the kids excited about Christmas…

From features meetings and conference in our Christmas knits to our digital editor baking the office mince pies, we’re pretty sure we’re even more excited than the kids that holidays are coming…

Recognise any of these signs that you're Christmas obsessed?

  • Anything you and your toddler bake has become Christmas themed –because iced biscuits taste so much better tree-shaped. 
  • Your biggest anxiety is how colourful the kids are going to decorate the tree (or how many baubles they’ll break) – say goodbye to that minimalist colour scheme.
  • Those coffee-shop meets with the other mums are so much more satisfying now the festive cups have made an appearance…
  • The playlist for the nursery run is mostly ‘Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer’ and ‘Rocking Around The Christmas Tree’.
  • You’re starting to sound like ‘Elf’ – ‘First, we’ll make snow angels for two hours, and then to finish we’ll snuggle.’
  • You’re dressing your baby in Santa outfits and even the cat can’t escape the elf hat…

So how are you and your family getting ready for the big day? Post your photos to our Facebook and Instagram feeds!
