School is back, the holiday decorations are down, and the next big holiday isn't until Feb. 14th. Starting at Halloween, we've enjoyed almost three months of celebrations, parties, presents, travel, and good old friviolity. It can be a challenge to keep the joy going once you return to regular life.
Especially if you have small children who may assume that some sort of wonderful change has come into their lives as every visit ends with gift or some sort of treat during the winter holidays. For older kids, the challenge may lie in the fact that school is back which means homework and the return of responsibilites.
How do you cope with the holiday aftermath? Do you notice a letdown? Are your kids affected by the return of regular life? What are your coping strategies? Let me know your insights and tips!
