(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…)
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 for free right here.Yes I want the freebies!
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 I want 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:
Mommas, you’re doing a great job. Keep moving forward and shaping the next generation.
And make sure you download the free weekly calendar right here.
