Keeping Things Steady

Grant's Farm, St. Louis, MO

Life is full of ups and downs. Like a roller coaster, there will always be a turn we don’t expect, a sudden drop, an exhilarating high. For kids, it’s helpful when Mom and Dad work to make things move on an even keel. Consistency is a key to making that happen.

Despite my best intentions, I don’t do this as well as I would like. I’m constantly looking for ways to simplify our life and to make systems that help our home run more smoothly.

Jamie at Steady Mom has been running a series, interviewing different moms and collecting ideas for how we can all maintain a sense of equilibrium — for ourselves as well as for our children.

Today’s my day to be interviewed. Pop over and see what we do, quite imperfectly, to keep things steady at our house.

  1. I can’t wait to go read it! Thanks for letting us know!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
