Maybe it’s just me, but when my kids are off school for Christmas break, it gets plain old WILD at our house!

Something about the combination of the upcoming holiday, the candy and gifts, kids who are getting used to being around each other all day again and the lack of routine results in emotions running high and general craziness all around.
