Being a mom is a big responsibility. You’re raising tiny humans to be future adults. Whoa!
Your hearts desire is to connect with your kids, foster strong family relationship, and raise them to be who God created them to be. But some days you can feel more like a maid, cook, chauffeur, social secretary, and personal shopper and less of an major influence in their lives. It’s easy to get caught up in the role of mom and forget who you are as their mom.
I believe you can leverage these responsibilities to allow you to be the best mom possible. By making things easier, you can spend less time doing the things you have to do, and create more time to do the things you want to do. Things like investing in your kids, and investing in you.
How? I’ll show you.
“Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.” — William Penn
Hey there! I’m Jenn.
I live in the Chicagoland area with my super skinny husband (see his extreme weight loss story at nolongerchunky.com – I’m so proud of him!), our 5 kids (toddlers, tween, and teens!), and no pets (because, who has time?).
As I raised my kids, life came at me fast and furious — including a surprise adoption of 2 babies (yep! one day 3 kids, the next day 5) — and I was paralyzed with overwhelm.
More Mommy Moments was birthed out of my personal journey of digging my way out of overwhelm. I learned how to make things easier so that I could spend less time doing the things I didn’t want to do, and more time doing the things that I did want to do. I discovered 4 keys that unlocked the overwhelm and freed me to live a rich, meaningful life without sacrificing who I was as mom to my kids.
What are these 4 keys? So glad you asked! I’m happy to share them with you.
I believe we make things harder than they have to be. By making things easier, we reallocate our energy so we can be more of who we were to created to be in our role of mom.
1. The right system can make the things we have to do easier.
You’ve heard the saying “we can do this the hard way or we can do this the easy way” and while we say we want the easy way, we still tend to pick the familiar which is often the harder way. When something is hard, we can spend more time avoiding it or working around it than we would if we would just get it done.
2. The right solutions or products can make our lives easier.
You wouldn’t try to cut down a tree with a steak knife would you? Of course not! You would use a saw. But the silly thing is that we do this very thing everyday. The right solutions will make our lives easier and our efforts more effective.
“Be who you want your children to be.
And teach them who you want them to be.”
— Kathy Koch, PhD
Let’s do this together.
3. Moms need the support of other moms.
We were designed to be in relationship. Not just as mom to our kids, but in community other moms. When we regularly receive encouragement and support (and sometimes a fresh perspective) we can carry on in confidence.
4. Take care of yourself, too.
This is the mandatory self-care section. I know. I balked at it too until I really understood that it was way more than manicures and massages. The truth is that taking care of yourself isn’t selfish. It’s essential. You can’t be the best mom to your kids when you’re not at your best. Taking care of yourself is good for your kids.
These 4 keys have made all the difference. Every day I become more confident in who I am as a mom (and a person) and I want to help you do the same. I want to help you make things easier so you can have more of what you want, and less of what you don’t.
