Day 1 of the Daily Schedules.

Well today was the first day of the Daily Schedules for the kids to help make mornings smoother. I am happy to report there was no yelling or screaming, no fighting or crying and the after bus sweep of the house turned out to be successful!

Brianna's room (Not really surprised she does this without being reminded) 

Shailyn's room (Not perfect but done) 

Nic's Room. (Yes he is on a air mattress his room is under construction will post pictures when its done cause its gonna be SUPER cool!) 

Now for the lunches Thanks to Pinterest I have found better compact healthy lunch ideas in my BPA free containers. This has made my morning so much easier. Although I dont usually pack the kids lunches for them I wanted to try out this idea. This lunch is for Shay so no veggies....I forgot carrots at the store! Bad mommy! :) The only thing missing was her bottle of water with her no sugar sweetener and her Gogurt. Those items were placed in her lunch bag.

Nothing fell out upside down either! Love this! No more Giant lunch bags overtaking my fridge!

Daily Schedules.

Micromanage :) I know this sounds good in theory but we will see what happens. I figure if the kids see the schedule on the fridge they will know what they are suppose to be doing. Later, I should have the chore schedules done although they will rotate chores like we do now. Each Sunday I will post the new weekly chore schedule, that way all the chores are spread equally among the kids. Here is what the schedules look like.

They all have different shower times listed as well....that way they have a time limit (Shay will stay in till the hot water is gone) and they know who gets in when! 

That whole Pursuit of Sanity thing.

Its time for a restructure. I am so over stretched because of my quick to say YES response to every question that is thrown at me. I know, I know you are all probably saying "You are SuperMom right?"  Well, this Supermom found her cryptonight and it's time. There just isn't enough time to do all that I need to do in one day. Well honestly its not enough energy. So, it is time for a restructure. I am pulling my super powers out and throwing them into my household. What is my super power you ask. I will create more time in the day! I know, how is it I can create more time? Well the answer is simple time management, organization and HELP. Over the course of the next month or so watch and learn as I create more time for my family. I will be posting spaces, organizational ideas, and planning! Although starting this will take some of that time I don't really have but to be honest....This momma is on the edge of a nervous breakdown SO its time for that change! I am on that quest for the pursuit of sanity right?? :)
