How Christmas Changes Once We Have Kids

On Saturday I wrote an Instagram post about how different my Saturday nights were now. No more hours of getting ready for a night out but instead cosy cuddles with the kids and early nights ready for the 5am wake up the following Monday. It got me thinking that Christmas was a similar thing. Our Christmas Days were all about food and relaxing and rubbish TV. Now they are about putting batteries in toys and an early wake up because Santa’s been. I love the changes of my Saturday nights and I love the changes of our Christmas times too. To find out if other mums felt the same I asked some of my lovely friends what was different about their Christmases. Thank you to all the Mums that took part, here is what they had to say.
