Figuring Things Out As We Go

Happy Friday! Is everyone ready for back to school? Franklyn and I have been super busy running around and getting ready for the kids first day of school and I’ve also been pretty sick. Figuring things out as we go has become a new norm for us, and the results have been hit or miss.

Figuring Things Out As We Go

Often times I stop and wonder how we pull it all off! I’m constantly asked how we do it all and I know I’ve written about it countless times, but I still think people assume there’s some type of specific trick or secret. To be honest, the only “secret” is that Franklyn and I aren’t afraid to work hard for what we want.

On most days, we’re honestly just figuring it out as we go along. I do have strategies that do work for us, but the most important thing we can do is be flexible and roll with it. That often means getting takeout on the way home from work or an extra episode of Daniel Tiger before bedtime because I forgot to dry the girl’s blankies.

There are days where I feel guilty that I’m not being the best mom I can be. I try to remind myself that if I’m trying my best and that is enough. Schedules and lists are useful, but I’ve found that being able to accept and trust that there will always be changes in plans is vital.

The next couple of weeks will be even busier because we’ll be moving again. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed we just moved two months ago and while we love it here, it’s just not for us. I do believe we had to get here in order for us to make the right decision for all of us.

Life just has a way of working itself out.
