Ok so I get it.
You make a schedule. You work it one day at a time. Sometimes you nail it, sometimes you fail it.
I can say one thing: I have not made my kids late once this first 2.5 weeks of school (priority 1). I have made time for prayer every morning (priority 2). I have not RUSHED them out the door (priority 3). I have instituted "clean-out-backpack-and-do-homework: time. (Priority 4). I have made their lunches everyday (priority 5) - except Fridays which is their reward for eating the mom-lunch every other day of the week.
Did I bathe them everyday? No. Did I do 10 minutes of yoga everyday? No. Did I pick out their clothes the night before every night? No. These are less significant. But I did it most of the time.
If I keep it up, awesome. If I lose a couple here and there, I'm not going to flog myself. The huge learning curve is putting a schedule in place and resolving to stick to it.
Thanks to all my sisters and brothers who care enough to counsel and mentor me in this "growth area" of my life. You are all amazing friends who I respect and adore. You have helped me more than you know!!
