You know when you have the best of intentions but things just don’t go as planned? That’s what the title of this post should be called.
The stars all align but not in the way you want it, quite opposite in fact. That’s what happened with this post.
In fact, somewhere around 10:25 pm tonight (Tuesday night, the night I’m writing this post) is when I nearly pressed delete.
Well I’ll tell you. Because it’s not ‘perfect’ enough. It’s not what I had in mind and I tried juggling everything today with one hand and I just couldn’t get it all done.
If you’re a mom, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.
But because this printable was sparked because of my kids, I’m pushing forward and hitting publish anyway.
Because I try to remind them all the time that things don’t have to be perfect, you just have to try your best.
And well, I did.
I spent a little more time cuddling them in bed at night because they needed it.
I made my daughter’s favourite breakfast muffins just before bedtime (I usually keep them stocked in the freezer but had run out) so my picky eater will have something healthy to eat in the morning.
I can add to that list today 101 things and none of which was cleaning my house so my house is currently a disaster.
If I haven’t completely lost you yet and you haven’t hit unsubscribe fast enough, let me share with you my Madeline’s Christmas printable.
And at the very least, you can visit all the other fabulous bloggers at the end of this post to see their beautiful printables! Thank you, Kristen from Ella Claire for organizing!

My kids and I love the Madeline books.
For me it started because it took place in France (of course) but for my kids they started watching the series on Netflix and then I bought them all the books.
I kept thinking of Madeline’s Christmas for this post and wanted to share my favourite verses.
It can be displayed anywhere in the house for easy Christmas decor like a gold painted clipboard.
I printed just the first paragraph to every book and with twine tied to this metal Eiffel Tower.
I always love to incorporate something I truly love into my Christmas decor whether it seems Christmas-y or not.
Here are two other options. I have these three printables on one download below.
Here’s your free printable:
Glad to see you are still with me!
