edToolbar()I am thoroughly enjoying that the girls are back in school. My routines are falling back into place quite nicely. As a WAHM I found this past summer to be very challenging. Have you ever had one of those days when WAHM I have welcomed the return of the school year with much more zeal than I ever did when I worked outside the home.
I actually questioned whether the excitement I was feeling was normal, and I must confess I felt a bit guilty when I was more excited about buying school supplies than my daughters were!
Not only do I find it much easier to focus on my work, and I’m accomplishing tasks in about half the time I did during the summer, but better yet, I have much more time to focus on the kind of mom I want to be when my girls get home from school each day. I am able to meet their needs with more patience and love because mine have systematically been met.
In my work with children and families I frequently talk about the importance of structures, systems and routines when it comes to raising confident, well-adjusted children, and now I’m realizing that it is just as important for mom!
