Introducing ... Inspired Wednesdays!
How often do we make it to Wednesday, happy to have 'survived' the endless cycle of laundry and dishes and routine thus far - that we forget to find the joy in the everyday? Have you ever scratched that fun project off your list because you didn't want to clean up the mess you knew it would make? Make dinner yourself instead of letting the littles help because their small hands take longer to teach?
I've been there - and so has my friend Stephanie over at Where He Leads, We Follow. We've felt the mommy guilt when we took the shortcut instead of finding an adventure in our Wednesday. While shortcuts can be a good thing, sometimes the problem isn't in our workload or our mess but in our perspective. It's relishing the joy in Johnny's eyes as he makes cookies instead of stressing over the flour spilled on the floor!
So here's our plan for turning our Washed-up Wednesday into an Inspired one. We will start hosting a joint linky party beginning NEXT WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6TH. We ask you to link up whatever family friendly fun you might have going on. It might be a creative school lesson, a kid-friendly recipe, a great family night activity, or maybe a funny anecdote. You'll be able to link up from either blog but will find different fun ideas at each place.
You'll also be able to hop around and meet other Inspiring moms and glean from their idea banks, which we hope will refresh your own. We'll pick our favorite fun ideas to feature the next week when we open up the linky. We have a few fun giveaways planned for you, too!
So, we stand now at T minus 7 days and counting ...
Are you INSPIRED?
