4 Moms: Large Family Logistics linky (appendices)

4 Moms 35 Kids answer questions about big families

Welcome, welcome.  If you’ve stuck with us for the past few weeks, you are probably already sold on this book.  If you still have doubts about whether it can help you, maybe this week’s post will clear them up.

I don’t always read the appendix in a book, but this time I’m glad I did.  These are helpful and meaty, but short enough that you can read both appendices when the kids start their naps, and they will probably still be awake when you finish.

The 2 appendices in Large Family Logistics are actually a good place to start if you are feeling overwhelmed or beyond help.  Fixing a broken system may seem hard when you’re barely keeping your head above water, but it can get easier right away – there’s no need for it to get harder before it gets easier.  If your daily life is in such a mess that you lack motivation to try to improve it, have a quick look at Appendix A: Coping While Exhausted and Overwhelmed.  It’s just 4 pages of encouragement and instruction on feeling better and starting on the road to improvement, with specific tips on how and where to start.

If  you just don’t know where or how to start, flip to Appendix B: Moving Beyond Survival Mode and use the checklist to get started in 12 easy steps.  This is basically a summary and condensation of all the material covered in the book – an overview to give you the big picture view so you know where you’ll be heading and how you’ll get there.  You can do this, and your family will thank you!

    3. – short enough that you can read both appendices when the kids start their naps, and they will probably still be awake when you finish –

      I love how you illustrated that. It’s such a Mom way to tell time, and I definitely think things like this. 🙂

    4. This is my favorite part of this linky – because I *did* read the appendices first. Ahem. 🙂
