Making Your Home Sing : Schedule

Making your home sing Mondays

With our helper gone, my schedule at home has changed and become full. From the laundry, to preparing breakfast, washing the dishes, cleaning the house, caring for the kids, quiet time and a bit of crafts time, cooking and bringing my girl to school, putting my boy down for a nap, quiet time on my own, fetching my girl, studying her lessons from school and lots more… That has been my schedule for the past week. I definitely noticed that I have few or no quality time with my little boy. I hardly have time to play with him and “study” with him. We are just starting to study the letters and numbers after he has mastery of colors and shapes. I know that I need to change my schedule or wake up earlier to do the chores. I am praying that God give me the correct prioritization and way to schedule all that I have to do at home without sacrificing time with my kids. I pray that God help me make my home sing starting this week by fixing my schedule.

Making Your Home Sing : Intentional Teaching

I am joining Nan’s weekly meme today. This meme is about how to make your home sing. I believe that being a stay at home mom is more than just being able to watch your kids personally grow up and personally caring for their needs. I chose to be a stay at home mom because I felt that this is what God is calling me to do.

I have been a SAHM for the past 5 years and it has really been fulfilling. Though there are days that I wish, I was also earning but God has been really faithful. Anyway, the past week, God has been challenging me to take my being a SAHM to the next level. I have decided to intentionally teach my kids. Like values, memory verses, a set of daily activities for Toby, instead of just letting him play or watch videos all day while I blog. It is a challenge to me and I would want to do these for the kids and above all, as my service to God. Truly, family is the first ministry that God has given us.

I pray that I will be successful in this new endeavor.
