To-Do List For the Stay-At-Home Mom Of Four

I’m a list-maker most of the time and here is my (almost) complete list of things to do for today:
1. Read Bible
(by the way, these two are always on my list and always in this order!)
3. Find Hello Kitty socks for Olivia since she’s been asking for them for a week now.
4. Brush teeth–mine and theirs!
5. Take shower
6. Sweep and mop kitchen floor so socks don’t stick to grape jelly tracks in front of fridge!
7. Call Mom
8. School
9. Make menus for next week
10. Make dinner

I try to keep the list to ten items or less so I can feel like I can actually accomplish the entire list. However, with a super-crab for a son who is teething, teething, teething…we only got #4, #6 and #8 done today. Thankfully, we were invited to dinner by friends who need to eat up leftovers, the laundry can sit until tomorrow, the socks…well, we’ll try again tomorrow, my Mom will understand if I don’t call today, I have a couple more days to review my menu plan and make a grocery list, and maybe I can hop in the shower before we leave for dinner. It’s not getting #1 done that makes this day feel so…well, so unproductive. I need to work on that.

Thanks, Lord, for being with me in this day. Please comfort Samuel and help me to see where there is more time in my day to spend with You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
