So Christmas is coming up and I have a 6mo Audrina this is her first Christmas ever!! Me and her father aren't together and we share holidays.i really want this to be a amazing day for my baby girl I really want to make it a great memory were going to my mums for breakfast after we open Audrinas presents but then I don't know what to do for the rest of the day because my parents and sister are going to a big family lunch that me and Audrian are not welcome at because they don't approve of my being a single parent and thejust judge and pick at all I do so although I could go I really don't want to because it would just be awful for Audrina to have to listen to how mummy is doing this and this wrong apparently,my ex partner who I am still great friends with family is also like this so any ideas on what I could do to make a fun memory??? Has anyone else experienced this?? Should I see if her dad would like to come spend the day with us and do something fun because although it's my day I think he'd like to see his daughters first christmas and I'd like us to share it?????? Help please any ideas??

It will be an amazing day, cause she gets to spend it with her momma. Just relax. She doesn't need a big planned day. That would be more for you than for her. She will have a blast no matter what you do.

Don't take this the wrong way, but she is 6 months old. She is not going to remember a thing about her first Christmas. The best way to make it special? Spend it with her, playing with all of her new presents. I would stay the hell away from anyone that makes you feel inferior because you are a single parent. Infact, that makes you a rock star!



Just enjoy your day with your daughter. Maybe go to a Christmas thing in your town, or just spend the day in front of your tree just playing, and eating yummy food. Enjoy your time, and take lots of pictures.

Awh I hope so I remember when I was little and me and my younger brother and older sister yous to go for a walk down the street with my dad at about 6ish so it was just dark enough to enjoy the lights and we all loved it they were gorgeous I hope to do that for Audrina as well



And that is a really nice idea I love it that's so cute I might have to do that for Audrina that's doing to be such a special memorie for th to share with their kids.thats actually the cutest thing I've heard off,things like this are the trust meaning of christmas making memories with the ones you love :) ove love love that idea!!!!!!

Are you kidding me? She will love the twinkly lights. We are very sentimental about all of our ornaments. Thought I would share it with you cause you sound similar to me and wanting to make holidays as special as they can be.



Each year, we get 1 special ornament for each child. So when they are older, and have kids and families of their own, they can have all of their individual ornaments that represents them for each year. Then we get a family ornament representing that year for me and my husband to always keep. Even if they don't want them, we will keep them for our own special memories. We don't buy any other ornaments, and our tree looked fairly empty for the first couple of years but it fills up quick! We always get the random ornaments from people, but our special ones are the best. I also have quite a few ornaments from growing up, and I wanted to pass that on the sentiment to my kids.

That is great I am super excited about getting to put up the lights and decorate our house althought I don't think Audrina is as excited as I am lol it must be so fun having older kids that actually get the concept of Christmas more and know all about "Santa Claus" lol sounds like its going to be the best day!!

We are great. We just bought a house, after years of waiting, so I am extra exited about this Christmas. My son is 6 1/2, and my daughter is 2 1/2. I am so thrilled to decorate our very own home for Christmas this year. So thrilled they get to have a really nice place to be and wake up Christmas morning. My heart is so filled with joy. I know that sounds sappy. We owned a house years ago, when my son was born, but moved out and sold it shortly after. He has no memories of Christmas in a home. Just having it in an apartment. This will be my daughters first Christmas in any real home. I am just so thrilled, and so are they.
