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!

Kids and Cleaning

My mother-in-law had a great idea for getting kids to clean their rooms during the holidays. She suggested hiding cut-outs of holiday shapes and hiding them throughout the room. As kids clean, they find the holiday cut-outs throughout the room. Some of the holiday cut-outs might have prizes (a cookie, an extra 15 minutes of TV time, or a special date with Dad) on the back of the shapes.

January - snowmen, February - hearts, March - shamrocks, April - Easter eggs or bunnies, May - flowers, June - flags, July - fireworks, August - school, September - books, October - pumpkins or leaves, November - turkeys or Pilgrims, December - Christmas trees, Santas, presents, candy canes.
