Bad Mom: Christmas Traditions – Written by: Caron Guillo

Dress the kids in oversized aprons and let them loose with the decorations, giving tips on using toothpicks to outline fine details and where to place candy buttons, eyes and reindeer paraphernalia.
Middle Years: Buy refrigerated cookie dough, a tub of frosting and candy sprinkles. Slice the cookies. Color the frosting red and green before the timer goes off. Tell the kids the sprinkles are festive and leave the room.
Later Years: Buy Christmas cookies.
