This has been an unusual week already and it doesn’t promise to get better. I am not comfortable going into details right now, but I am severely depleted on local help, I was plumb out of computers for a period of time, and there is a family crisis of unknown proportions currently in progress.
For that reason, my 4 Moms post this week will be very brief and possibly very scatterbrained. You be the judge, and feel free to entertain each other with clever repartee at my expense if it amuses you. I’m sure it will amuse me.
We are supposed to talk about getting the bigger-than-average family to church on time this week, and I’m the last person you should ask for advice on that subject. But I’m sure that won’t stop you – after all, you’ve asked me about potty training and I can count on one hand how many times my nearly-3yo has used the toilet. I could probably count on one finger. Checking…yup. One finger does it.
But because I have a very good excuse for being a slacker this week, I’m sharing another audio post. This one is not nearly so long or well thought out as the first. It’s more of a 5 minute braindump, which will give you a good idea of what it sounds like inside my head right before I sit down to write a post. Aren’t you glad I spend plenty of time editing?
And for those who can’t find time to sit still for 5 minutes or can’t find enough silence to actually hear 5 minutes of audio – believe me, I’m right there with you! – here’s my post in a nutshell:
The size of the family has very little to do with whether you are on time for church or late. It may exacerbate the problem, but it is entirely possible to be on time with a large family, just as it is entirely possible to be late with no children at all.
Your ability to plan ahead and execute those plans has much to do with it. Listen to the audio for a few of my best tips and dirty secrets. You probably know without listening that we are not always on time, but we aspire to do better and we are improving.
