As a member of Collective Bias®, I had the opportunity to share some #Motherfunny stories in this sponsored post for NickMom, your best mom stop for laughs.
They tell you when you have kids, it changes everything. This is true, but as far as the holidays go, some things are eerily similar. Here are some of the things I’ve found through my now five years and three kids worth of experience.

There Will Be a Fashion Catastrophe
Big kids. Small kids. Adult kids. It doesn’t matter who—what I want to know is HOW. How does Santa do it? My guess is that he secretes a pheromone akin to a raw onion, thus producing tears in proportion to proximity.
Forget baby weight gain. The holidays bring about a lot of food babies. Which in turn bring about tighter pants, which may result in an unflattering appearance. Try taking it a size up this year in advance.
Cold weather = fires = the smell of burning flesh. The best way to avoid this is to keep lighter fluid away from both your husband AND your children. Or use fire extinguishers as stocking stuffers.
I think I’ve exhausted my point. Whether you are a parent or not, the holidays share a lot of the same chaos: weight gain, house fires, fashion emergencies, and Santa terror. Head over to NickMom to see more funny holidays, with and without kids.
If you’re a parent are your holiday hi-jinx worse, better, or the same pre- and post-kid?
