    Yes to stocking up on batteries and putting gifts together early. I remember all the power wheel trucks and things having to charge for hours. These are such helpful tips.

    These are great tips! I used to be extremely stressed out on Christmas Eve and Day, especially if I was hosting. Now, we usually celebrate earlier in the season due to work schedules. And my youngest is a teen, so it’s not quite as stressful as it used to be! But these would have been great tips to follow when my kids were younger!

      Oh gosh yes. We had a car accident and I was pretty much incapacitated that Christmas. It really helped me figure out what was most important and how to deal with it more efficiently.

    These are awesome ideas. I start stocking up on batteries now and we have learned that the hard way because as new parents we didn’t even think about batteries. Thank goodness he was too little to know and his grandparents saved the day and brought some. I’m definitely going to wrap this year as presents are bought. I did it in huge piles last year and it was overwhelming.
