The Morning Work Greets Me & Important Reminder

A Lady Looking in a Mirror by an Open Door

If I get up in the morning before the children, all is quiet.  I can hear the clocks ticking.  It is nice and peaceful.  I can hear myself think!  I can prepare for our day together.  It is more productive.

The children get up and all the busyness of the day begins.  I have some who had nighttime accidents and so there is lots of bedding to wash.  Today is diaper wash day since I switched to cloth diapers.  There seems to be a cold being shared among the children: now spread to the baby.  I must make dinner preparations: de-bone a chicken and strain the broth for a yummy soup.

Today is a school day, so it will be busy with that also.  I will be mostly teaching and nursing a baby all day, with hopefully a little cleaning thrown in.  This is my calling, and I love it.  This is my full time job.  I am on assignment from the Lord all day.  My job is to lead my little ones to God; to train them up in the way they should go.

Are you looking to better yourself as a mother, wife, homemaker, and/or homeschooler?  I think the things we read are so important because they help form us as a person.  I don't spend much time reading fiction, but I do love to read books to better myself as a homemaker.  Remember, tomorrow (May 4th) is the last day you can purchase the Ultimate Homemaking Homemaking ebook Bundle.  Once it's gone, it's gone.  If you've been thinking about buying it, now is the time to do it, and I would really appreciate if you'd purchase through my link.  I had several of the ebooks included in the bundle even before this bundle was put together, and even those on their own are well worth the price of the 97 ebook bundle.  Remember, you don't have to read all those books right away, or even ever, if some of them don't interest you.  But it's kind of like having a library of books available just to you, for you to pick one or two out at any time to glance through and come back later, or devour and learn from.  AND that library is full of books to benefit you in your roles of being a wife, mother, homemaker, and homeschooler (and of course it benefits your family too with the knowledge you gain).  I hope you can get it before it's gone!  And thank you for your support of this site.

  1. oh those morning work!

    I would love to wake up, have the house still and quiet but my girls are early riser, I mean they wake up before 6 am everyday!!!! craziness.

    I tried many things but so far letting them have cold cereal as their first breakfast (they can serve themselves) while I attempt to make coffee, and drinking it while still hot, makes me in a better mood to make second breakfast and some time third (you didn't know that my girls are in fact Hobbits!!!! they sure do eat like one hehe!)

    Homemaking is a full time job, but I wouldn't choose any other one :-)

    Have a blessed weekend, and thanks for the link to the homemaking books sales :-)

    Love
    Renee

    1. Wow, before 6!!!!!! That is soooo early! I'm sorry! Haha, second breakfast and third? Mine are good eaters too and would probably eat all day if I let them.
