Adjustments

So, I’m just now getting around to posting again because it’s been a little busy around here.

Last week our two grandsons, Kaden, 4 and Will, 2 stayed with us while their mother, Erin was visiting her husband and their father, Jon before he leaves for Iraq on September 24.

There wasn’t much time for anything else besides caring for them! And they’re really easy children to care for.

But it did remind me of some things I had forgotten from my children’s younger days when I really was “overwhelmed by my blessings”. And I had to make some adjustments to my usual routine:

· often the “boundaries” had to be pulled in tighter
· we had to have “time out” for all of us
· teaching time had to be for shorter periods
· we ALL had to work harder and longer

I’ll expand on these thoughts in following blogs.


What adjustments might make your days easier?

Getting more sleep would help me a ton! I need to do that for myself!

Yeah, unfortunately for young moms that doesn't always happen! Catch it when you can---maybe while Tobin is napping? I know that's when you try to get things done! But, sometimes, it's just necessary to let some things go so you can be your best.

Thanks for the comment!
