12 Days of Christmas Preparations: Day 12 - Twelve Minutes of Rest

On the twelfth day of Christmas Preparations, my true love gave to me:
Twelve minutes of rest,
Eleven holiday traditions,
Ten last minute gifts,
Nine Santa avoiders,
Eight holiday parties,
Seven teaching moments,
Six memories a-haunting,
Five golden rules,
Four fighting kids,
Three snow days,
Two calling workers
and a well planned respite weekend.

Well, you made it! It's Christmas Eve, congratulations. Seeing all of your children so excited and happy - it was worth all the preparations wasn't it? I hope you are having a wonderful day with friends and family.

Have no idea how to find those precious few minutes? Check out these 12 ideas from our Guide to Single Parents.
