What makes you a steady mom?
This is the question that Jamie of the blog, Steady Mom, is asking this summer. This wonderful series is taking a look at a wide variety of moms, with different circumstances and family situations, and exploring what helps other moms to cope with the challenges of everyday life!
I love Jamie’s blog, as it always helps to bring me back to feeling more grounded and focused on what’s important as a mom. She’s even written a book on that very topic, called Steady Days which I reviewed last year and still find myself going back to often (the short chapters make for good bathroom reading, in those precious 2-3 minutes of “private” time!).
Here are the questions that Jamie had for me:
- What is one important, practical step you take that helps you maintain a steady rhythm in your home and how does it make a difference to your days? (For me, taking my showers at night helps to get our mornings off on the right foot.)
- What is a personality weakness that motherhood has made more obvious to you and how have you tried to overcome that weakness for the sake of your children?
- We all have those days–where all our good plans and intentions crumble around us, the children are miserable, and we are exhausted. On a really rough day, what techniques do you use to try and turn the mood around and redeem the day in your home?
- You have three young children, aim to cook and grow whole foods, just started a new blog on top of your other one, and just moved to a new house. What does being a steady mom look like when you’re in a survival, just trying to get by period of life?
