MommySecrets

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!

When You’re Too Tired to Deal with Your Kids - MVParents

I'm sure none of you can relate to the title of this post... "When You’re Too Tired to Deal with Your Kids". Lynette actually posted this earlier this month, but I haven't had time to write about it. I'm leading workshops in an overnight conference in Pigeon Forge, so I'm sitting in a quiet hotel room, taking a few minutes to write. The workshops went well, but the evening is also a treat - quiet dinner at The Old Mill, candlelit bath, and I'm about to crawl in bed to read the Bible and write in my prayer journal.

You should read her entire post, but here are some of the lines I appreciated from her wisdom for parents with young children:
  • Pace yourself. Parenting is not a race.
  • Take care of yourself.
  • Make sure your young kids are having either nap time or quiet time each day
  • Put a digital clock in your child's room, so they'll know when they can wake up for the day
She also includes tips for children ages 7-18.
