There's No Place Like Home
Now that we are home my focus has been to provide a home where children are nurtured and nourished. It's like a nesting instinct. I have been super busy; cleaning, rearranging, baking, sorting, shopping etc... On the trip I was selfish and I chose to deal with the consequences, after all it isn't everyday I am at Mt. Rushmore. As parents we make those exceptions. Seeing the effect it had on the girls made me realize we are all happier when I put mothering first. Focusing on and meeting their needs- as I am modeling and equipping them to meet their own, actually creates more space for myself. Time invested in my family creates secure little people who are not misbehaving to get some attention.
I'll be posting soon on some of the projects I have been doing around the house to make it the perfect place for us.
