My Crazy Life

Finding Joy in the Journey

Baby Steps


Well I have successfully added a few new routines to our lives. Every morning we have family work time where the kids and I clean up the house. This has been wonderful because the house has been staying so much cleaner and doing it every day makes it so we don’t have as much build up and the kids know what to expect. We have also started going to the gym almost every weekday. I have started a water aerobics class 3 times a week and I love it. I have also started planning meals in 2 week increments and only going shopping once every 2 weeks. This helped us to more closely stick to out grocery budget for the month (it was a little over because we got new bed stuff for our kids). It has been nice to have a bit more of a routine. I have several other things I want to add into our schedule one a time. I want to add 1. 20-30 mins of reading time 2. A learning/lesson time for Michael. 3. I want to get back into the habit of scripture reading and prayer. But for now I am satisfied with the habits I am forming and will try to add in a new one once this one feels strongly established.

I am a 25 year old mother of 2 crazy little boys. I am blessed to be able to stay home and care for my boys.  My oldest is three and my little one is almost 2. They definitely keep me busy. My oldest son who I will call Mercury is quite a a handful he is very spirited, creative, and energetic. He is always looking for something to get into which makes for lots of fun blog posts. My younger son who I will call Zeal is a beautiful toddler and is always following in his big brothers footsteps. Right now he is into whatever Mercury is into but adds his own little personality to the mix. This blog will basically be about my adventures in parenting and trying to run a household. As I am a Latter Day Saint and also plan on homeschooling you may also hear tidbits about these and other interests as well. Happy Reading!
