Hey, my name is Rachel, and I have 5 kids under 6 years old. Though some weeks have threatened to overtake my sanity and there are constant demands on me as a mother, I've figured out how to organize and systematize
my home so that I feel in control, we maintain a satisfactory level of order, and everyone is loved well
My little ones can sleep until 7 or 7:30 am, pass through the morning routine on autopilot, eat (and clean up after themselves), take a good nap (or have independent play time), do dinner, follow the bedtime routine, then get to bed between 7 and 8 each night with minimal disruptions.
Not because I'm super mom or super controlling or hyper organized, but because we have simple routines and habits that make our world keep spinning round.
And these same habits and routines will work for every mother, regardless of her personality and the personalities of her kids.
Because you take the basic principles, and make them your own.
After hearing from thousands of mothers over the past few years, I know what the main struggles and challenges are for moms of young ones. I know what keeps them up at night, what causes overwhelm, and what makes the home feel chaotic.
