Christmas might be over, but there's still one last piece of the Holiday puzzle that I'd been waiting to post here on the site - one that bridges the year-long gap between Christmases. This year, WWE Studios and Fox Home Entertainment partnered for SANTA'S LITTLE HELPER (covered previously), a new Holiday Movie starring WWE  Superstar Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, WWE Diva Paige and AnnaLynne McCord (DALLAS, NIP/TUCK). Beneath the "holiday hijinks" was an underlying message of doing good, and what it truly means to be "Santa's Little Helper." There's five "Sugarplum Virtues" from the film that completely apply to parenting small children, and making sure that they maintain their spot on "The 'Nice' List" all year 'round!

Santa's Little Helper
Santa's 5 Sugarplum Virtues:
  • A Cool Head Under Pressure
  • Humility
  • Cooperative Nature
  • Inspirational Spirit
  • A Kind Soul

These are things that always need to be worked on... despite all the "cute" you see from The Rock Daughters here on the site each day. At 3 and 6, they can flip between The Dark Side of The Force and The Light at a moment's notice! But there is much good in them, and that's reflected in the biggest element of "doing good" that we've ever done, and our girls served as SANTA'S LITTLE HELPER when they helped me purchase gifts for local families that could use a boost this season.

Now, that "Cool Head Under Pressure," "Cooperative Nature" and "Humility?" Those are the points we always need to be mindful of as we move toward Christmas 2016, and my wife and I have added three more to the list...

Ho! Ho! Ho!
