I've always found Xmas hard as it's always been either just me and my mum growing up or in later years I've hung out with friends and then my DH has joined that.
This year we have a 16mth old little girl and I can't help feeling sad that she's got a pretty crappy Xmas just with her parents. Our friends are either getting hammered ( childless ) or with their own families.
We're thinking of just going to the beach for the day but it's making me feel sad for my daughter. I don't want her to have anxieties about crappy Xmas days too. 😞
My DH only has 3 family members and we usually see them Xmas eve for dinner as per cultural norm.
Are there many others in this boat? How do you cope and feel your kids get the best experience of the day?
Any ideas of fun outings to do?
