As you all know, this is Christmas week. This is the one week a year when I wonder.... "Can we please just not eat anymore?"

Christmas brings about the hustle and bustle and we all need to de-clutter. Now I want to set the record straight, my children are not clutter but all the attention they need while I am running around like a crazy woman does become overwhelming.

Now please do not tie me up and stone me but this week I am just so in love with Dora and Diego. No matter what is going on around the house, just pop in Dora or just find Diego on the TV Menu Guide (or DVR it!) and they are totally focused on the television.

Now I am a control freak when it comes to how much and what my children watch but this week, Dora and Diego has saved my children's lives and my sanity. This week, Dora and Diego are something that I totally love. I also found printable (free!) Dora sheets that my older son loves to color. They can be found here, here, and here!

So if you are a mom like me who doesn't really allow her children much TV, give Dora a try. She is a life saver when it comes to a Mom's Christmas Sanity!

You gotta do what you gotta do! Our no tv during the day rule will be coming to an abrupt halt tomorrow as I scramble to finish up last minute gifts. I'm declaring a movie marathon day. Maybe I'll throw in a Planet Earth DVD, call it science, and we can count it as a school day. ;)
