Last week I had recieved an email about being part of Mom's Roundtable on Mom Talk Radio. I debated for an hour whether to do it.
Remember my vlog that ended badly? See I am a control freak and a perfectionist (even though we all know perfection is an impossible dream and that we should just embrace the chaos, right).
Even though I was totally unsure about whether or not this to would go well, I emailed back and said sure, I would love to even though I didn't even know what the topic was. Inside I was quaking and wondering what the heck I was doing.
The shows are pretaped and then air on Sunday evening at 8pm and can be heard online. The topic was on the holidays and whether you enjoy them or do they stress you out. The show itself was called "Are You a Planner or a Doer". I plan on downloading the podcast to my iPod and listening to it while I am traveling today to give me something to do.
The Roundtable is on about 35 minutes or so into the show. I got to sit at home in my husband's office during the taping since it was over the phone. The Truth About Motherhood was also on and for those of you on twitter you may know her as @TruthfulMommy. All I can say is those 7 or so minutes fly by fast and that Maria Bailey is a very talented host.
What about you? Do you enjoy the holidays or do they stress you out?
I love the holidays but we haven't gone to the extremes we have in the past and have completely simplified our holiday rituals. We have had to since in the past four years I have either been pregnant (and suffering from exhaustion and morning sickness) or nursing a 4 or 5 month old. The only thing I can say: Simplify and embrace the craziness, your family, and the spirit of what the holidays are all about!
