The Nester. I decided to focus on trying to be a better mom, and you can see my first post here.
Day 10: Have a Routine
I talked the other day about my kids morning routine and chore sticks. I have stuff I'm supposed to do in the morning too. I should get dressed and make my bed and make the girls' lunches, and make sure all 3 kids get breakfast and clean up the kitchen along the way, and empty the dishwasher so they can put their breakfast dishes in it.
But (and you guys are learning all about my bad habits in this series aren't you) sometimes *I* have a hard time staying focused!
I start reorganizing something, or check my email, or think I should paint a first coat on something (anything) so it will be ready for me to work on later when they're at school.
Today I stayed away from any screens (yes, including my phone) til the girls were on the bus. I didn't let myself get distracted by my activity I'm helping with at church tonight..I just made sure I was doing my responsibilities and keeping the girls on track too. Definitely made for a much better morning. And you know what, when I did get around to the computer later...the world had not ended and I hadn't missed anything. Here's to making this the new habit!
