Hi there! I’m Lynn.
Would you like to know the secret to raising perfectly well behaved children, maintaining a spotless home, preparing delicious gourmet meals for your family, AND being able to fit all of the things you love to do into your daily schedule??? Then you’ve come to the right blog!
HA! In a perfect world maybe!
The truth is… I’m just a mom (and a grandma!)… with MANY years of child-rearing experience. In fact, my husband and I are now raising our second generation, which explains why we are considered non-empty nesters. If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the years, it’s that each one of these angelic little “mini-me’s” have their own personality, their own hidden agendas, and their own set of challenges for even the most experienced parents!
Our house is not spotless by any sense of the word- it’s lived-in, it’s clean, it’s comfortable, and it’s a home where children and their “things” live…and sometimes become temporarily “misplaced”…ok, lost. It’s HOME! You know the saying… “Cleaning the house while raising kids is like shoveling snow while it’s still snowing“? Well… that’s my mantra!
As for preparing gourmet meals? Personally, I don’t even like to cook! I guess it’s not really the “cooking” part that I don’t like… it’s the planning, the prepping, and the cleaning up… ugh! And what are the odds of choosing a meal that everyone likes? Slim! In fact, I could probably count those meal choices on one hand!
Truthfully…I’ve never even had a daily “schedule”. I consider it a successful day if HALF of what I need to get done is accomplished AND I can still climb into bed before midnight!
If you can relate to any of this, then you’ve definitely come to the right blog!
