TINY LIVING ◽ HOME

Okay, all of you mamas with kiddos still living at home…

Why does Sunday morning always seem the most hectic?

 

Since we’ve had kids, my hubby has worked at a church. So maybe it’s the fact that I’m on my own getting everyone out the door that makes it a bit a chaotic for us,  and now add dogs into the mix -  I’m really struggling! Is it that the devil is on guard and more ready to attack on Sundays?

Tiny living does not exclude us from the challenge. Perhaps maybe getting out the door is even more of one, since we’re so jammed packed!

I'm constantly:

stubbing my toe on a dog crate…

ramming my knee into a space heater…

trying to squeeze through a door full of coats hanging on it…

moving trash and recyclables out of my way to open the pantry...

It’s a bit tight!

This past Sunday was a doozy! After getting myself completely dressed and waking up the boys, I let the dogs out and fed them. Of course, I put my nice dress shoed into a pile of wet dog poop! Nice! I left that outside to deal with later and rushed back in, to change. Back inside, I have my 12-year old crying that he’s wearing high-waters and can’t go out in public like this! I think boys grow overnight!

As I’m scrambling to find something that will fit him, the other son can’t find his shoe. Where do they go in a tiny space? Surely, they can’t go far! The boys only have two pairs each, to eliminate space, so the shoes must be somewhere close. I remember when they were babies one of them always spit up on their nice church outfit or had a blowout that caused us to be late. Now, the bigger they are, and with us the parents, there are more people moving around and maybe more chaos than ever before!

I’m praying for all you mamas out there on a Sunday morning, parenting alone or not, living tiny or large. Sunday (and every day!) is a challenging day for some reason, and we all need all the prayers we can get…
