Now that I have two kids I sometimes feel swamped! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my two kiddos and husband, but lately I feel overwhelmed and exhausted, but from nothing. On days where I feel I was super productive with the kids, I lack feeling accomplished on my personal side. I have things I want to get done this summer and get on a daily routine (not schedule-apparently there is a big difference), but it is a lot harder than I thought. So I did a little internet hunting to get some tips from other moms and I can honestly say I feel a lot better and motivated to make some positive changes for us!
I definitely want our family to eat better so weekly meal planning on the weekends seems like a great idea. Also, waking up thirty minutes before the kids everyday seems reasonable and it will help me get myself together. I mean, I would like a childless shower every once and awhile and abs circuits in the morning would help. I am in the midst of creating another branch of The Curly Roots and I can't wait to share with you. So, I needed to get a little confidence from fellow moms out there that are super organized! You ladies are my heroes. I am serious! I envy moms that have their own businesses with multiple children. I am in awe of you and have no idea how you do it.
Here are a few links to some of the reading I was doing:
I was also excited to stumble upon this book, Steady Days: A Journey Toward Intentional, Professional Motherhood. I will be getting this on amazon at the end of the week :).
I am in love with being a mommy and I want my kids to have the most fun, organized, and professional mommy around! So here goes, nothing. If it doesn't work, I will try again! I have to be realistic because it is so hard for me to change my ways, but I am going to do what I can, when I can!
