I have found that having kids has given me such joy, and truthfully it comes from the heart.

I love the fact that we go out to the shops and my 3 year old will scream out in a loud voice, “look mummy crimmmas!!” And its these small moments that make my heart melt, at the sights of the baubles and wreaths, the trees and pictures, he truly believes in the magic and that is something as adults we forget.

So with the responsibilities of being the adult and organising presents, gatherings, trips to look at lights, shopping, cooking, planning, writing out all the Christmas cards, cleaning, wrapping……REMEMBER – its the all for the kids and the kids are what makes it.

And’s enjoy.


  • I enjoy Christmas so much more now that I have my son


  • So true I can hardly wait now to start decorating our home and making decorations each year it gets a little earlier!


  • As a kid, I loved Christmas and I cannot remember when I stopped believing in Santa. Then I started working in hospitality which meant working long hours on Christmas day so other people could have a wonderful Christmas day…I began to hate Christmas. I didn’t look forward to it all!
    Now that I have my own children (6 & 3 yrs), I just love it! My kids brought the joy back for me. I sometimes think that I get more excited than my kids…I always put my tree up when the kids are sleeping at night and when the wake in the morning I love hearing the screams and cheers of excitement. I love wrapping the presents, sending my daughter to school with her little gifts and taking the kids to chose a gift for the wishing tree. family Christmas lunch is at my house this year (first time) and I am beside myself with excitement!


  • I totally agree, Christmas has become fun again since we had children.


  • I completely agree! Christmas was magical when I was little and it’s magical again because of my kids :)


  • I think most people would agree with you.
