Are you still celebrating?☺
We are, and it’s wonderful, but I have to admit that tomorrow’s “Weigh-In Wednesday” is hanging over my head like a fudge-covered anvil. More on that later, though, because today we are making…
We have never, ever made gingerbread houses as a family. (The house that Cate’s assembling in the post below is from a kit that she received for Christmas.) I have always wanted to, because the whole process looks like a ton of fun and, well, it’s what we over-ambitious and highly-competitive homeschooling moms do, right?
(My husband tells me I need to dial back on this.)
In fact, one of the reasons that we’ve never done gingerbread houses before is that I’ve always let my perfectionism get in the way. This is a big problem for a homeschooling mom, especially a mom who spends too much time on the internet, because inevitably she (read: me) compares herself unfairly to what the other moms have done (and there are, like, hundreds of moms in our Catholic/homeschooling/blogging-mom circle) and she throws in the towel before she even starts.
That’s when I turn to Fly Lady.
I take a baby-step.
More on this never-ending saga later! Will the sides of our houses even stay together?! They may not…there’s risk of failure…and if they don’t…
We’ll make gingerbread trifle.
Have a blessed and happy 10th Day of Christmas!!! And for a great article about the meaning behind the 12 Days of Christmas, click here.
