At some point in time there was held a large conference or maybe even a 5 week class on how to be a good mother and home manager. I however, was not in attendance. Whether it was that I was not sent the invitation or that I was distracted by the donut cart outside the door. I was not there. Missing vital information on how to make my job easier and successful. So for the past 5+ years of being a mother I have struggled to figure it out on my own. I can’t help to feel that it doesn’t have to be this hard. I know there are tips, new products and better ways of doing things. This is my quest to find all those tools to make my life and home the best it can be.
I also have so much to share. The gears in my head rarely rest. I am constantly coming up with new things to try. Some ideas work. Some don’t. I will be sharing all of them.
I update 5+ times a week, so check back often.
Attending a church meeting with three children is never easy. Attending a church meeting on a sugar filled Easter Sunday is even more challenging. Early in the meeting I felt my 4 year old daughter playing around my ankles, I ignored it because she was playing so quietly. After about 20 minutes all three were acting up to the point my husband took our 5 year old son out into the hall. As soon as he stood up to leave our 18 month old daughter began to scream. She wanted to go with him. I couldn't calm her down so I asked the 4 year to help me clean up our belongings so that we could join her dad in the hall. Well, she didn't want to leave, so she joined in with the screaming. With a red faced huff, I picked them both up and took one giant step towards the door only to find my daughter had not been playing sweetly at my feet. She had tied them together!
