The house is chaotic and loud today.
There are toys and board game pieces in every single room it seems.
My ultra organized personality battles with the desire to be the genuinely free spirited fun momma that I wish I were.
Messes that don’t get cleaned up each day annoy me. I’m trying to teach personal responsibility yet leave margins for real life to happen.
I crave simplicity and less, yet there is always an abundance. Don’t get me wrong, I’m so grateful for that, I’m just struggling to find the balance when every room feels full.
Are there any minimalists out there with four or more kids (toddlers to teens) who homeschool?
Anyway, I’m hiding out in a cozy corner to sip hot coffee whisked with butter, work on a dollar store word search, and do some raw journaling.
