30 Days to an Organized Life Day 20
As we have continued the 30 Days Challenge I have received a couple of questions from moms of young children about how to organize when life is so busy taking care of littles.

“I have been a reader for about two years and I love your blog. I have been blessed by your food prep ideas, meal planning and organizing tips. I really love how you talk about taking small steps to reach your goals. I am wondering though, what advice you would give someone with young children.
I have four children ages 14 months to 8 years and I homeschool so they are with me all day. I know that you have teenagers so your expectations of what you can accomplish in a day might be more attainable (maybe not…) than someone with small children. So I am wondering what advice you would give someone who wants to organize their home but may not have the time or energy to do it as often.”
Different seasons of life require different strategies and you are correct that what I can accomplish with teens is vastly different than what you can accomplish with little ones. When I was in the stage with little people at my feet all of the time I tried to lower my expectations as much as possible. My goal was to enjoy, love and train my children. I did find a few strategies that helped me maintain my peace and joy during that time.
