In the past, I’ve found myself feeling mentally unorganized, if that makes sense?
I knew I needed to start somewhere but didn’t exactly know where.
Then, it dawned on me. I should start at the beginning, or at least as much of the beginning as I can think of.
Looking for a little extra help?
If you’re looking for a little bit more help because you are just ‘feeling the chaos’ I made a shortlist of items I recommend doing during times of stress and overwhelm; a type of checkoff list that will help you not feel further behind and still make sure you’re getting the basics done. If this would be of help to you please get the download here.
Let me know what you think and if you’ve tried getting back on track this way. I’d love to hear from you!
Thank you for your advice about a morning routine. You mentioned waking up before your kids. This made me wonder…how do you deal with lack of sleep from nursing babies at night or handling other night wakings with toddlers? This is all new to me…I just have one baby who is 9 months old and waking a couple times a night. Have you adapted to this or have your babies been good sleepers? I admire you for raising so many children! God Bless!
I’ll be honest with you. Every baby is different. For the most part, they are good sleepers. When I say this though I mean that they wake up a few times throughout the night to nurse and then go back to sleep. They don’t stay up. And, since I co-sleep with my babies, I just roll over, nurse, and fall back asleep with my baby in my arms. I tend to get a little bit more sleep this way.
I honestly think your body adjusts to always being woken up as well. And, sometimes, I just take a nap when my little’s are napping. Other times, I just don’t get up early. I take everything in stride and day by day. 🙂
