From Planning to Productive
Good Morning everyone! Hope you all had a great week and ready for the weekend!
My daughter and I got the morning chores done here on the farm, and now we are enjoying our breakfast with a relaxing read from Little House in the Big Woods. Anyone else love reading these books to their kiddos?
Ma Ingalls has truly been my inspiration in the type of mother I want to be for my daughter. Calm, patient, positive, hard working and hospitable. But most importantly, organized! She made sure each day had something important to accomplish along with the daily chores. Remember her schedule?
To have a good consistent routine in the house, especially for our children, really helps them to know what is expected each day and helps with the overall environment in the home. It also provides an assurance to not get so behind that things become too overwhelming to get caught back up.
So with that said, I'd like to provide a quick simple weekly planner in hopes it can help you get your home more organized. Us moms have a never ending job with homemaking and tending to our family, so getting organized really helps to save our sanity haha. Also, if you do have children, put your planner somewhere they can easily see it. That way they can get involved too, and know what is expected to get accomplished that day. Maybe your family planner will get imprinted on them like Ma Ingalls did for her children to pass on through the generations. Being organized is such an important skill we can teach our children.
Remember, planning is the path to productivity! So lets get productive!
