What Really Works For Wives And Mothers

As a woman, wife and mother.  My day starts with stretching a hand to stop the alarm that is already ringing at 4:30 am.
Next I say a 'thank you for another day prayer' while seated on the bed or kneeling beside it.
Then I rush to the bathroom and freshen up because not doing this may in a way make the kids uncomfortable while getting them ready for school ( kids have noses that can smell bad breath and maybe... sweat too).


Basically,  what I do in the bathroom is
brush my teeth, use some deodorant and check myself in the mirror before attempting to wake the girls.


Oh sorry, before
waking them up, I get into the kitchen to make sure lunch boxes are packed and kept by the
main door , that is if they were not packed the previous night. 
 Then I quickly set the breakfast table.


After which their school uniforms are brought out and kept where they can assess them and dress themselves up cos I mean... the youngest girl is four.


Shoes are then arranged on the floor with the correct stockings in each pair.


Finally, everything is set, so, I don't have to wake them in a hurry. This is the first time I am going to sit in their room and take my time waking them up since 4:30am." Most times they ask for a few minutes of just doing nothing after opening their eyes, which they get to enable them wake up and be more alert.
 From here, I can take care of myself too while they are managing themselves with just a little assistance here and there.


On the whole,, I experience busy mornings. With the help of the alarm on my phone, it works for me!!!
      
Everyone leaves the house smiling.
 Time management is very important, so that nothing takes more time than it should. It is important to allot specific minutes or hours to every chore and try to abiode   by it. 


You do not have to sweep everyday, re-arrange the house and put some breakable items away. Put away some items that require constant attention from you, like some pieces of furniture that will require daily cleaning.


Cook and store in the freezer, so that you so not have to cook everyday. 
Plan your shopping ahead and keep a list where you jot down daily, every need that arises, so that you do not forget anything when you go shopping. 


Older kids can help out with getting their younger ones dressed.


Lunch boxes should be packed the previous night and kept beside the main entrance.          
Can we share what works for you?
