‘Please be kind to me this Christmas. I never set out to disappoint you. When all else fails, wrap your arms around me so I feel the strength of your love.’: Mom shares sweet reminder to be patient with kids during holiday season

“Grown-ups find preparing for Christmas stressful. I know you want it to be perfect for me so I’ll have memories I can cherish forever. But I see you getting stressed, sometimes even before you do. I pick up on it and reflect it like a mirror. Please slow down, notice me, talk to me, play with me. That’s what I’ll remember.”
