You may feel as though “setting aside” time shouldn’t be how it is when it comes to family. You may think it isn’t fair to your little one to “schedule” them in.
Though it may not always seem fair, sometimes you do have to schedule in time in order to create memories with your children amidst the holiday chaos.

I want to make the day fun for them, but I don’t want to break my bank – especially if, in reality, they won’t remember it.
