Meghan King Edmonds had her hands full this Christmas.
Two months since her life with husband of five years Jim Edmonds publicly erupted with allegations of infidelity, followed by Jim’s denial and move out, Meghan has taken to social media to share what it was like juggling things this holiday.
The mom of three recalled her Christmas morning sequence of events, writing to fans, “Full of joy and laughter (…and also oversleeping because your toddler was in your bed so you couldn’t check your alarm volume and turns out it was at ZERO and you didn’t find out till 7:26am… when your twin boys are screaming and the alarm ***silently*** has been going off since 6am… but you’ve been helping Santa with duties/aka installing – literally – a new play room, and didn’t get to sleep till 2am; stressing out your kids don’t see the ‘big gift’ right away.”
Edmonds’ list continued, “Putting your premade casseroles in the oven 1.5 hours late then forgetting you have to cook a special syrup even though you still haven’t brushed your teeth/hair but your entire family is over – each looking like a snack bc they prepared properly – and hungrily awaiting their promised breakfast; all whist 3 terrorists parasitically demand their milk with full diapers awaiting my changing.)” The former reality star is a parent to 3-year-old Aspenand 1-year-old twins, Hart and Hayes.
“Christmas, such a magical holiday,” Edmonds concluded. “Btw I think many moms can relate, right? If so, please share your experiences with me. I could use some solidarity.”
Fortunately, as she chronicled on her Instagram Story, her parents and sister were with her to lend a helping hand during the festivities.
As fans chimed in with encouraging words for the famous mom, her estranged husband commemorated Christmas on Instagram by posting group photos of himself with his seven children.
As he wrote, “Merry Christmas from the Edmonds family.”
This time last year, the former couple hosted Christmas Eve together just months after welcoming their twin boys.
“Merry Christmas Eve, everyone! It was so fun putting out cookies and milk with Aspen, having her ‘help’ open all her (enormous) family’s presents, get possessive with her family she doesn’t know well over her brothers, and read The Night Before Christmas and it actually be the proper night for the book,” Meghan wrote on Instagram at the time. “Hosting Christmas Eve for 20+ with three babies can be a lot but we pulled it off beautifully. Nights like tonight validate my decision to move to Missouri times a million. Family is everything.”
