People ask me all the time, how do you do it with three kids with having time to cook, clean and list goes on. I honestly don’t know how I or we do it! My baby love is a huge part of how the day works out and I really thank you God for that, because I would go crazy without him!!
Now One thing that makes it work is giving up something everyday. My personal sacrifices are watching TV, using the computer and drawing. I am not saying I never do any of these 3 things, but I put them at the bottom of my list. So if I am not done cooking or cleaning,or playing and reading to the kids, I won’t do any of them.
Find your own routine as well. Find what works for you and your schedule.
At the end it is worth it because you are taking care of your family first, and that is always good. I know people say, well you need time for yourself, you do, and you will make time, once you figure it all out.
Another example, I get to work 30 minutes earlier. So what I do is have my breakfast and pick up my sketchbook, or a reading book or even apply my nail polish!!
When you sacrifice those things to take care of someone else, God gives back, he sees all the good you are creating around you and wants to give it back.
My life might look chaotic to some. It is at times, Our home is ALWAYS messy, but we clean everyday even if it does not look like it, but we have to work as a team.
Another tip: Include your kids in the things you do around the house, like cooking, cleaning, doing the garden, even reading your book out loud some nights instead of their own, laundry…List goes on, but don’t stress, you can make time for anything if you do all with your heart.
