I'm a certified baby and toddler sleep consultant, Language of Listening parent coach, and MOTHER OF 5 KIDS IN 5 YEARS!
If there's one thing that's true it's this... a few years ago, I did summer all wrong and barely lived to tell about it. I basically abandoned routine because I wanted the days to feel free and easy, but ended up with too much chaos, too little structure, and the Big Fat Temptation to stick the kids in front of the TV too often just to get some peace.
This summer, we ain't going down that road.
This summer, we are going to have enough routine to meet everyone's needs AND build in anchor points throughout the week and weekend that make room for fun and connection.
Lauren Tamm, The Military Wife and Mom, and I are going to bring our best strategies as parent coaches, routine connoisseurs, and quasi-minimalist mothers to help you make memories in the simple things, get household responsibilities done (by everyone!), and create days that flow well for everyone.
