Just A "Mom-Day" (what I like best)

Earlier this week, I had a perfect "mom-day."  You know, those days when you don't have to do anything major.  There is no outside appointments, no unexpected drama, no event to get ready for or clean for, no sickness and just a good ole boring day.  Yes, this mom likes boring.  As I get older, I cherish the days when I am just home with my little ones.  Actually, I like to be home with them more and more.  It's my "queendom" as I heard one older mom say one time.  Anyway, I've posted our homeschool schedule in the past and my kids' schedules but I thought I would let y'all take a look at just a regular day for this Mama of 10.......a perfect day to me.  And really, it was pretty much the same when I had 3, 5, or 7 kids :)

  1. Thank you, I enjoyed this glimpse of your day. And I like the word Queendom. I like the word wifedom also. I love how GK Chesterton talks about the wife in her home being the the queen and ruler over her domain.

  2. Love the picture of you with your daughters!:)

  3. Ordinary days are wonderful aren't they?! Staying cozy and wrapped up in a good book with the kiddos or school going perfectly with moments of laughing mixed in. I love those days. Thankfully they happen more than the bad days :-)

    You are blessed!
