Today I am talking about how to tackle things. I want to tell you about our Sunday mornings. Oh boy, we need to leave the house by 7:30am. That means 6 kids up and buckled in the van by 7:25. So how do I do this? 1. Make sure the house is straightened up on Saturday night, because well honestly I am a bear if I have to step over things or something cannot be found. 2. Give everyone bathes throughout the day on Saturday instead of waiting until bedtime. 3. Brush and braid my 9 year olds hair, cuts on the screaming about it being tangled when I brush it out on Sunday morning. She still fusses but not as much. 4. Review what we are going to wear on Sunday and make sure we have shoes THAT FIT, ready to go. 5. Make a list of what I need to take; I often cook at church on Sundays for 80 people. So I need to make sure I have everything so I do not need to turn around. 6. Make sure the diaper bag is filled up with everything to include extra clothes for the younger three children. 7. We eat poptarts on Sunday mornings, yes store bought horrible for you poptarts so they can eat in the van. 8. And finally we leave the house early, so I will have time to stop for gas or traffic. That way I am not rushed or stressed. Okay, so it does not always go as smoothly as I want but this is the goal. By the way if the house is straightened then when I come home on Sunday afternoons I can nap. Which is my favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon.
