Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Travel Time

Secret for new moms, or moms new to traveling with kiddos. Expect it to take a week after traveling to get back into your home routines. With altered sleep schedules, menu flexibility, time changes, and special attention during vacation - not to mention exhausted parents - it just takes some time to get back to normal. I always do my best not to overplan during the week after traveling. And I'm so glad we have a slow week this week.

I'm sick, so doubly exhausted.
The house seems extra chaotic with new Christmas gifts.
The kids have TONS of energy - the loud boy kind!
My mom was just admitted to the hospital for a probable heart valve replacement.

So I'm doing my best to choose prayer over panic, knowing that God is sovereign over our health. Praying for my mom's health (and life!), and trusting that God will take care of us regardless of the outcome. And waiting to hear another report from the doctors.

Oh, Ann, I'm sorry to hear that.

Here's to a happier New Year.

Praying for your family, Ann!

We almost always build in one day after traveling to recoup before going back to work. Having that one day to decompress makes such a difference for holidays and vacations. You are right ... it does take at least a week for life to get back into it's normal groove. I was much less bitter about holidays and traveling once I just accepted that and expected it to be so. ;-)
