Book Recommendation for YOU, Mom

“I'll put on some Bing and we can believe for a marvelous, miraculous, glorious Christmas season.” --Rachel Hauck, The Wedding Dress Christmas

Normally we're one-holiday-at-a-time girls, but sometimes a Christmas book comes along that you just can't wait on slowpoke December to get here to read.

This is that book.

Forget Mayberry, forget Stars Hollow . . . we want to live in Hearts Bend. As you're urging your children to read and hoping for 100 Book Club memberships, don't forget about your own pleasure reading. This one is an instant mood-lifter. We highly recommend this book and this author!

Free Printable

We LOVE the idea of hiding notes for our little ones (and maybe even our big ones) to find: in a lunch box, book bag, or tucked in the pages of that boooooring math book. We took a stab at creating our own! Print this file on card stock and they may last more than a day . . . HA HA!

Do you like this idea? If so, we might just make more . . . .

Husbands and wives: are you on the same page today? “Singing from the same sheet of music,” as the old expression goes?

(Notice we didn't say "Dad and Mom.")

Check out this video and let us know how you stay connected during this crazy season.


By the way . . . we have a huge male fan base at the Happily Parenting Headquarters. Maybe you'll see why at the end of this video.
