Ugh. The holidays. They were overall pretty awful. Could have been the worst I remember.
Family was more stressful than usual. Keeping Gwen out late and mingling was nerve wracking as we were unsure how she would handle it. And my husband and I were at odds for two days.
Expectations of the holidays were high…maybe too high.
After the third house we visited, Gwen finally understood the concept of unwrapping presents. She really enjoyed herself even if we didn’t.
