Hi Jen, yes been there and worn out the tea-shirt :-)

After years of standing my ground, step by step, the festivities are real and authentic now. I know it's tough with the kids though - they're so built up by society, it's hard not to go along with it.

I'd say as long as you keep making some space for yourself and pay attention to being you as much as possible, it can still work out well without needing to compromise too much.

See how it goes
