The Christmas season is upon us. Last Thanksgiving, anticipating a visit from grandchildren who live far away, we began looking for ways to keep energetic children happy and occupied. One grandchild, especially, delights in turning cartwheels in the middle of the living room at any given moment.
Granddaughter, the energetic one, arrived with her family after a car trip which lasted over twelve hours. We knew her mom would need immediate rest, and granddaughter, having slept through the night, would be ready to tackle the world…and her brother.
If you find yourself in a similar situation, here are some suggestions to keep your sanity and still be friends with your adult visitors.
This list is only the beginning of a more peaceful, quiet Christmas. Children who visit can brighten your day. You can be happy to see them come or happy to see them go
