I was sitting here this morning thinking about the go-go-go of my day. I work from home, so it doesn’t include leaving the house most of the time. I’m a stay at home mom who also works and goes to school from home… Who am I kidding? I think leaving the house with four kids is nuts. I thought it might be fun to share a little sneak peak into what life is like around our house in a typical day.
A Day in the Life of a Mom of Four

Notice I never mention “get ready”, because on a typical day… I don’t. 🙂
As a mom, does your day look anything like this?
*Cheers to the golden silence at the end of the day*
