#6 Take a Minute (or two)
As life goes racing by, sometimes we as busy homemakers forget to stop and remember the important things. Our kids are only young for so long, moments only happen once, we don't get another chance. When things are crazy, we things are hard, when you feel like you are so overwhelmed. Stop. Take a moment, take a mental picture of your kids, (even if they are in timeout, screaming, or covered in flour). These are things you will laugh about, stories and memories you are creating. Your home is meant to be lived in. It is meant to hold lives, love, laughter and create thoughts memories and stories. When the chaos of life his happening, stop, take a moment to breath, ground yourself and know that this wont last forever. This is especially helpful when you have an 8month who screams and crawls after you all over the house because she wants just you to hold her, and a 2 year old who thinks he can tell you no, and do what he wants and then ends up in time out. Not that I would know anything about that.
