Moms – Keep Track of ALL THE THINGS in Style (Free Weekly Planner)
(Inside: A Free weekly planner for busy moms of tweens and teens.)
I write all of my three kids’ activities on my calendar and then highlight (using three different colors) each kid’s schedule.
And in one week, I still missed…
…an ortho appointment.
…and a soccer practice.
Gone. I did not remember either at all.
No wonder the last time I was at the orthodontist and I was sitting in the waiting room right in front of the receptionist, she called me on my cell to ask where I was. “Hi!” (Me waving at her.) “Yes, I’m right here in front of you.” (Sweet lady – she’s not used to me being in the actual waiting room on time…)
What’s a girl to do when she can’t keep it all straight?
Free Weekly Calendar for Moms
I appreciated her calendar, but I needed a little more room in the after-school squares and I wanted to make it a little prettier, so I made my own. I’m so excited to be sharing it here with my community of moms raising tweens/teens.You can download it forfree right here.
The life-skills we’re teaching when we talk through this calendar with our families
Moms, when we simply do life with our families, we’re giving our kids important tools they’ll use forever. But I know we don’t think of it that way. We think, we’re just doing what needs to be done – so Iwant to point out all the amazing life-lessons your teaching. (And how awesome you are, momma!)
When we sit down on Sunday evenings and talk through the family schedule, we’re teaching our kids:
How to lead their own lives
Ownership in the family
How to work well with others. (Team-player skills.)
Be intentional with their time.
And so much more…
Mommas, you’re doing a great job. Keep moving forward and shaping the next generation.
