Sticky Fingers

Sticky fingers.  Missing homework.  Lunch battles. You know what time it is. Yes, it's back to school time.  Getting everyone out the door on time, with everything they need can be overwhelming on a normal day, but how about the day when your child threw up as you were walking out the door?  Or your toddler ditched all his clothes (like that wonderful commercial) and the temperature is 50 degrees?  You can't take the kid outside like that, can you? Can you?  These are just some of the challenges that Moms face everyday.  Whether you are a working stay at home mom  or a working outside the home mom (I can't get with the "stay-at-home" vs. "work outside the home"descriptions - all moms work. Period. ), you are the babysitter, the nurse, the house keeper, the financial manager, the purchasing director, the teacher, the overseer,  the chauffeur, and the chief cook and bottle washer, as my dad would always say.  If we don't do it all, we do come close.

The good news -  you don't have to do everything or figure out everything yourself.  We are Village Moms, bringing you the 411 on helping you raise your children to be responsible adults while helping you maintain your sanity.   We will have organization tips, parenting advice, recipes, helpful hints, and great conversation.  We believe in supporting and encouraging one another.  We hope you will join in the conversation.   Join us on Facebook - Village Moms.  Please keep all comments respectful, and clean - you know - something your great, great, grandmother would not find offensive or your children. 

Thought for the week:  My mother always said, "Many hands make light work". This John Heywood quote says it all. Raising healthy, well adjusted children takes a village - don't be afraid to ask for help - it will make the load lighter.
