Choosing Joy Over Grief

Yet here we are, it’s almost “next year” and one thing is for sure: it’s not going to be a normal Christmas. How can it be without my dad? Read now or pin for later. Since my parents go divorced when I was 12, Christmas was always celebrated with my dad. There was never a discussion, it was at my dad´s place and everybody would be there at least one of the days. My dad, his new wife, her kids and the five of us. In all those years I think I only missed once because we decided to stay in Spain with my parents-in-law and I hated it.

Next up in “I Don´t Know How She Does It” we have Aimee Gonzalez Niebuhr from Mama Centric.  Aimee is not only a homeschooling mom of 3 but is also an amazing writer (as if homeschooling 2 kids while entertaining a baby wasn´t busy enough yet!).

Check out her tips to get it all done!
