Where's the exit?! How to handle holidays with the fam


Oh em gee, will this holiday season never end? Between Uncle Joe making really, uh, uncomfortable comments to Great Grandma Josephine continually commenting on your hair ‘do, you’re ready for any excuse to get ya outta the room. Even if that means changing Cousin Timmy’s super stinky diaper. (Ew.) Here’s how to deal when the family is driving you up the wall.

 

The Sitch: You’re stuck in a really awkward convo

Deal: Change the topic. Sports. Weather. That silly thing that happened at Christmas 10 years ago. Anything.

Escape: “Oh, I forgot to iron the tablecloth for mom/I left cookies in the oven/I left my curling iron on upstairs.”

 

The Sitch: Grandma is demanding to know why you don’t have a BF/aren’t wearing that sweater she got you/are wearing your hair like that

Deal: “They just don’t make ‘em the way they used to/Oh, I spilled cranberry juice on it at a party last week—it’s at the cleaner’s/Well, how do you think I should wear it?”

Escape: “Gram, I’m going to get you another sweet tea. Be back in a sec.”

 

The Sitch: The turkey is so dry, it’s disintegrating on the cutting board

Deal: Lather on the gravy and cranberry sauce, sistah, and be sure to top up that glass of apple cider.

Escape: “Mom, maybe it would be nice if we did more of a buffet, and put out some cheese and crackers and other munchies, too…”

 

The Sitch: You’re stuck babysitting the whooole kiddy clan

Deal: Grab your other babysitting-age cousins and play a holiday themed game—Yeti tag or candy cane hunts, anyone?

Escape: Movie time! Pop in a cute flick and have a few more ready to go.
