life got in the way, though, and now, 9 days LATE i can start posting.
|me and bryce before his trip to STL to visit cousins|
so i've been working on this thing i was asked to do about motherhood, which has got me thinking - a lot. sometimes i get so frustrated with myself bc things aren't going the way i envisioned or the kiddos aren't doing things i envisioned or whatever. i recently read something, though, that has changed my outlook a little.
"families will be off-course 90% of the time. what matters is that you have a course and you are constantly striving to stay on it." - 7 highly effective habits for families
what a relief! i usually think we are the only ones that are struggling at times to stay organized or feeling like it is really hard work to keep the day-to-day going: laundry, housework, learning time, meals, homework, quality time together, errands, sports practices, personal time, ect. but i do have a vision so i am at least somewhat on track.
and staying on track today means 3 things: working out (because I ate wayyyy to much easter candy and lemon-coconut cake - recipe coming up!), taking my kids to the park (since they are out of school and we want to play!) and folding the massive (and i mean massive) pile of laundry.
it's all about small goals. ;)
