Calling all moms! As moms we are no stranger to the act of giving. However, at Thanksgiving we moms tend to have a different type of challenge. The challenge of finding the balance between perfection and reality, so that Thanksgiving can be enjoyed by all, including mom. Sometimes we get too caught up in the Norman Rockwell or Martha Stewart illusion of Thanksgiving. And that is precisely what it is, an illusion. In this segment of Moms’ Timeout will be discussing ways to simplify Thanksgiving through the use of more conveniently prepared food and lowering our expectations.
Remember moms, you set the tone for the day. If you envision a calm and enjoyable Thanksgiving Day then you need to convey a calm and enjoyable atmosphere and it all starts with your expectations. Your family will not think less of you because you did not prepare everything from scratch, or to a specific family member’s preferred liking. If they do then they need to reevaluate their own priorities and perhaps next year that individual should make the said dish from scratch, and to their liking, since it is their favorite. Don’t allow your Thanksgiving to fall prey to the frazzled host, simplify!
And to help you simplify your Thanksgiving feast we have a giveaway!
Moms’ Timeout and Among Friends Healthy Baking Mixes are teaming up to provide one lucky follower two packages of convenient and healthy cookie mixes, one chocolate chip cookie mix and one oatmeal raisin.
