Disorder is a problem for any Mom
Hey mommy friends,
I hope all is going well with you lovebugs. If you don’t know, I am 5.5 months pregnant and I am extremely fatigued and just plain ole tttiiiiirrrrreeeedddd. I found out that we are having twin boys and now it all makes sense. I was super tired, nauseous, moody, and absolutely over it. At first, I thought I was having a girl because this pregnancy was so different, not to mention my mother was super hype and ready to buy dresses. However, one day when I was sitting and watching tv, I felt two lumps moving around on different sides on my belly. I gave my belly the side eye, not to mention I was in no rush to go to the doctors because I had too much going on with my other 3 boys. DON’T JUDGE ME! Anyhoozers, I finally decided to go to the doctor and lo and behold the Dr.’s big eyes looked at the ultrasound and confirmed what I knew. I was excited, and so was my husband (after he recovered from the shock). My family went from 3 to 5 rambunctious boys!!!
Luckily, my family (Team Harris) knows the routine and the house schedule. We have a pretty simple order of events because I leave some room for my kids to be kids…even though I love extreme order 🙂 Kids need space and time to play, or else they will drive you completely crazy. I have 3 boys; ages 7,5, and 3…so I know their fluctuating energy levels. Needless to say, they are not aware nor do they care about energy levels or lack there of.
Disorder causes major family problems
When my family is DIS-organized and operating in DIS-order then we really don’t enjoy our family time or free time because we are too busy playing catch up. For example, if the boys’ lunches aren’t made the night before then that puts more pressure on us to rush and get the lunches done, but as a result, we don’t have time to enjoy breakfast and do our morning devotions. I can’t imagine how much-added pressure this will bring when the twins arrive. OMG! I don’t want to be rushing back and forth and haphazardly getting things done. I much rather have my days and nights planned.
Your family may have a different schedule or you may find yourselves just scrambling to get things done without any specific plan in place, but it is up to you to determine what your family needs to spend more time doing. Once you figure out what activities your family needs more time for, then trust and believe you will make the necessary adjustments to git er dun:-) Don’t stress yourself out! That’s the point of organizing the disorder, also recruit some help. Give your kids chores, assign family members to assist you on certain days, and ask friends to run errands. Motherhood is much more enjoyable when we have help that allows us to enjoy the fruits of our labor.
