It can be a little overwhelming to find myself a mother of four. How can I meet each child's individual needs? It is frustrating when two or more of my children need something from me at the same time. Not a lot gets done during the day with a newborn and toddler in the house. So I've been pondering what's important to me right now. A perfect house? Gourmet meals? Lavish Christmas plans? Nope. What is important to me right now are happy, healthy children and meaningful Christmas memories.
So, my to-do list for December:
*plan easy, healthy meals to enjoy as a family *throw in one load of laundry a day *keep gifts simple and shop online when possible *bake cookies with big girls *play chase with my little man *dance with sweet baby *read a Christmas book to the kids at bedtime each night *tell my husband I love him
Oh, and I can't forget:
*Ask the Lord for help each day, and be thankful for all He has blessed me with
There. Simple, right? Well, better than trying to do everything.
I am a blessed stay-at-home mama to three beauties and one little man--aged 3, 4, 9, and 13 years-old. Life is busy and challenging, sweet and beautiful. I love to create family traditions and memories for my loved ones. Thanks for visiting!
