You know that “life as Mom” is full of sleepless nights, overflowing diaper pails, and messes that multiply like bunnies. It’s also replete with happy giggles, bellies to tickle, and warm bodies to cuddle.
But, it’s the crazy and the crabbiness we feel that gets in the way of the cuddles.
Combat the crazy by getting your act together.
Just a little.
There’s a better way to get through all you need to do in a day — and keep that pretty smile on your face.
Organize your daze!
When you put things in perspective, identify what you want in your life, and start developing systems that help you get there, you’ll not only feel better, but your family will, too.
Kiss Crabby Mom goodbye.
- Imagine having a plan for your family’s meals this week. A plan you can pull off without freaking out.
- Imagine a laundry system where your kids participate and you don’t have to do it all.
- Imagine having free time to spend in the evening because you’ve taken care of the “big rocks” and are ready for a break.
Who am I to say this?
I’ve got six kids. I’ve homeschooled from birth. We live debt-free.
The kids are all alive — currently aged 12 to 23. Three have graduated high school and entered four-year state university.
We survived the crazy and the crabby. And I learned a lot in the process. Ideas and strategies and systems that I want to share with you, so that you don’t make the same mistakes I have.
In my spare time, I’ve published two blogs, written four cookbooks, and designed a planner that I think will rock your world in helping you identify your priorities and walk them out in daily life.
Make the most of your daze with these handy resources:
The Print & Go Planner – a streamlined planner, designed to help you organize your thoughts, your meals, and your to-do’s.
The Print & Go Student Planner – similar to the standard version, this edition swaps the meal plan section for space to write down the week’s assignments.
