As a mom of five children, and many bonus children, it can be difficult to stay organized and juggle all the tasks that come with taking care of a busy family.
Here are some tips that might help:
Make a master calendar. Have everyone in the family contribute to it and check it daily. This will help you stay on top of everyone's commitments, like sports practices and school events, as well as family activities.
Prioritize the must-do tasks and delegate the rest to family members, if possible. Make sure to involve your children in the chores that are appropriate for their age, like taking out the trash or folding laundry.
Find ways to simplify mealtime. Take advantage of "instant pot" meals, meal prepping, or even ordering groceries online.
Take care of yourself. Schedule time for yourself to relax and unwind. Even if it's just a few minutes, it will help you stay energized and focused.
Make time for family fun. Have a regular game night, movie night, or family outing. This will help keep family bonds strong while also creating wonderful memories.
Staying organized as a mom of 5+ can be challenging, but with a little bit of planning and preparation, it is possible to handle all the tasks and responsibilities that come with the job. Love & Light!
