We are linked up with We are That Family for Works for Me Wednesday
I have three boys: 6, 3 and 1. I also have a very busy hubby. Here is a “typical” wednesday night at our house.
3-4:30 (yeah, I start that early) pack diaper bag, make sure kids are dressed or at least have clean clothes laid out-get dinner ready
4:30 Fill the Littles bellies
5:00-5:30 Clean up from dinner, finish dressing, shoes, diapers, get them in the car Phew!!!
5:30 leave for our 25 minute drive
6:00 Drop off daddy for worship practice, we run errands, go to the park, do something to keep the kiddos busy
7:00 Return to church, I would like to, but try not to get there early. Since Daddy is always on stage, it is 3 on 1 for worship time until they go to their classes. It pretty much wears me out.
8:15 church ends, after picking up kids, chatting, Jeremy doing something he needs to do (someone always needs him), drive home, and kids to bed it’s usually about 10:00.
Something that has made it sooo much easier is: putting the kids in comfy clothes for church. Not so much the oldest, he dresses himself, but the 2 little ones go in sweats and a t-shirt. They come home, quick snack, teeth brushed and straight to bed (diapers get changed in the nursery-yeah!) Some may think it’s gross sleeping in the same clothes they were in nursery, but seriously, I don’t care. It brings me that much peace and it Works for Me!
