The greatest thing we can do for our children: Living a life of sacrifice

Thursday, March 31, 2016

When it comes to our kids...we all claim that we would do anything for them. Like give our lives for them. We all like to think that we would sacrifice ourselves for those we love the most. But when it comes down to it, how many of us are willing to do those little and big things; those sacrifices that our children need from us daily? i.e. giving up sleep, being willing to be peed, pooped and thrown up on, give up bathroom privacy, give up eating a full meal sitting down, giving them our undivided attention, showing interest in their talents, being present, giving up what we want, so they can get what they need from us etc...etc..

Being a parent is one of the most rewarding and hardest things I have ever experienced in life... all at once. I absolutely love my children and love being a stay at home/ homeschool mom. Though I love it, it doesn't mean it's easy or comes naturally to give myself up day in and day out for my little ones. Some days I want to push them all outside and lock the door so I can have one minute to quiet. Other days I want to lock them all up in a time machine so they can't grow up.

I had an especially hard day recently. No one listened. There were meltdowns every five minutes and messes galore. I could not get control of my children and it was driving me crazy. I didn't want to do this anymore.  It was too much work.  I was about to go tell my husband that it was just too hard to care for my children AND homeschool them. I obviously wasn't cut out for this. Let's just send them to school. I give up. But I didn't. I went outside while the kids were inside and I cried(literally) out to God. I told him that I needed help and that I didn't know what to do. I opened my Bible and came to this verse.

"He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. As soon  as he hears it , he answers you. And though he gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself anymore, but your eyes shall see your teacher. And your ears shall hear a word behind you , saying, "This is the way, walk in it."  Isaiah 30:19-20

Now I don't usually just open up my Bible and let it fall where may and close my eyes and randomly point my finger at the page to see what God has to say to me. But as I opened my Bible to this chapter my eyes fell to this verse that said exactly what I had just prayed. God did hear me. He was with me and would answer me and help me. And I love that it refers to God as Teacher!

Then I opened up to this amazing book I have been reading by Timothy Keller, "Jesus the King". He was talking about how Jesus had to pay the sacrifice for our sins, not despite God's love but because of God's love. He gives an example of what this love looks like through parenting. How children are in a constant state of dependance on us. If we don't make sacrifices for them in our lives; ultimately they will have to make sacrifices.

 He goes on to say,

"Unfortunately there are plenty of parents who just won't do it. They won't disrupt their lives that much; they won't pour themselves into their children. They won't make the sacrifice. And their kids grow up physically, but they are still children emotionally-- needy, vulnerable and dependant. Think about it this way: You can make the sacrifice or they're going to make the sacrifice. It's them or you. Either you suffer temporarily in a redemptive way or they are going to suffer tragically in a wasteful and destructive way. It's at least partly up to you.

-----All real life changing love is substitutionary sacrifice."

Wow! Talk about God speaking to me! Oh boy was he.  Here I was willing to do anything for my children... just not those things that were hard for me. I didn't want to be uncomfortable. I didn't want to deal with cranky kids and the unending messes they made.  I didn't want to try to stop being cranky myself. I didn't want to try to show more patience or kindness or self-control. I didn't want to try to outlast them and deal with the exhaustion of disciplining them. I wanted to do what came easy. I wanted to give into my flesh. But that would not be a sacrifice and that would not be what is best for my children...and myself.

Our kids don't need us to be the best moms in the world, or cook the best meals, or keep the house cleaner than anyone else, they need us to sacrifice ourselves for them; for their needs. To just be there for them and be willing to give up our comfort so that they can be comfortable and loved.

I want to be clear in saying this in no way means that children should just be doted on and get anything they want; whenever they want and that we should run ourselves into the ground for them and never take care of ourselves. NO!!. I am saying that we need to give them what they need as their parents and to make those sacrifices that are necessary/ that are in their best interest to their well being: Discipline, boundaries, routines, chores, kisses, hugs, love, our undivided attention(for limited amounts of time;), our patience, our support, our help, our praise, our example.

I want us to remember what it means to be parents. I believe much of this world has forgotten what it means to be parents. That we should do whatever it takes to give them our best. Not that our lives should revolve around them but because our lives revolve around Christ  we are willing to put our families above ourselves.

Truly the best thing we could do for our children isn't to save up money for their college or a new car, or a bigger house (though there is nothing wrong with these things), but to be present in their lives; to care so much for them that we do what we can by God's grace to sacrifice ourselves daily for their needs. To make those hard, uncomfortable choices.

The greatest thing we could do for our children is to sacrifice ourselves for them, so that they can see a living example of what Christ did for us.

Of course we can't do this in our own strength but as we cry out to God he will give us the strength to do what we can't!

Do you daily struggle with sacrificing yourself to your children?

When the tears won't stop

Friday, March 25, 2016

I believe that everything God brings into our life is for a reason. Even hard things.We might not realize it at the time but they are most likely answers to prayers.

Every day I pray that God would draw me closer to himself and use me to draw others to him. I have also been asking God to help me be a better friend. God has been answering my prayers lately but not in the way I expected. Most days I love getting into the word and seeking the Lord. But when I am experiencing a hardship there is an urgency that I don't normally have to seek after God. I am desperate to hear from him and have him comfort me.

This past week God decided to answer my prayers. He completely brought me to the end of myself; as in...I was an emotional wreck.  (I know what you are thinking and no, it was not that time of month;p Believe me that would explain a lot as there are many times when I am crying and I can't even explain why!)

Some hard circumstances occurred one after the other that triggered something in me that was not pleasant. I felt like I was being spiritually attacked. All I could think about were these hard things that I and my loved ones were going through. Some have been going on for years and some are new. It was just too much for me to handle. I couldn't process it all.

As I thought of all that was ahead of me and those I love, plus my responsibilities as a mother, wife, daughter and homeschooler; I quickly became overwhelmed. I felt myself sinking into a pit of despair. I literally could not. stop. crying. You know those kind of tears and sobs that no matter how hard you try to control and stop but will not be stopped? That is the kind I had. I am the kind of person that can not muster up a tear to save my life or seem to have an unending source of tears welling up inside me.  This was a case of the latter.

Usually when I am going through a hard time I can cry out to the Lord...and my husband, and get back to a good place. Even though I did cry out to God and my husband, I continued to feel so distraught and alone. I felt so desperate to share with someone who understood what I was going through. I am finding that though I want my friends to reach out to me when they are going through a hard time, it's hard for me to do the same. I am afraid I will be burdening them. I am afraid that they won't understand. I am afraid that I shouldn't be upset about these things when others are going through much worse.

Though it felt against my nature I did reach out to some close friends. Thankfully they listened and prayed for me. I am so blessed to have them in my life.(You know who you are;)

In the past I have had some friends go through some really hard things. Sometimes my response to them was less than gentle and gracious. I would think, "Why couldn't they get it together? Come on, just suck it up. Everyone goes through hard things."

Even though I have felt this cloud of oppression over me before, it can be easy to forget how it felt to be in that dark place. Sometimes no matter what you do, you just can not pull yourself out. I believe that part of the reason God allowed me to go through this was to give me empathy for those who are going through the same things. Yes, I had to fight to get out of this funk, stop feeling sorry for myself and worrying about my loved ones. I had to fix my eyes on Jesus and off of the circumstances. I had to focus on the truth of God's word and his promises. I had to get into his presence through worship and praise, but I didn't do this in my own strength. As I cried out to the Lord, I know he enabled me one step at a time to climb out of the muck and the mire. And I know that those praying for me helped me to lift my head up again.

The biggest comfort to me through all of this is knowing that Jesus is able to sympathize with our weaknesses.

"For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every way has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4: 15-16 ESV

And that he shed tears when he was in distress, weeps with us in our hard times and knows every tear that we shed.

"You keep track of all my sorrows.You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book." Psalm 56:8 NLT

"Jesus wept" John 11:35

Also to know that I am not the only one to experience anxiety and emotional breakdowns! Just look what David says:

"Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have given me relief when I was in distress. Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!" Psalm 4:1 ESV

"I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping. My eyes wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all of my foes. Depart from me all you workers of evil for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping." Psalm 6:7-8

Our lives here on earth are not going to be devoid of suffering, trials and tears. We can not deny our emotions and act like everything's okay, when it's not. But we can trust in the one who bore the ultimate suffering of carrying our sin and shame to the cross. Not only did he experience immense pain and humiliation for us, but he was separated from his Father. Though he asked the Father to take this cup of suffering from him he said, "Not what I will, but what you will."

Because Jesus was separated from God for a short while we have been united with him forever. 

Whatever you are experiencing, know that God is with you and will never leave you.

You are not alone.

Even in the deepest darkest valley... he is there.

When you can't see through all the tears...he is there.

When you have nowhere to go...he is there.

When no one else understands...he is there.

When you can't carry your burdens anymore...he is there.

I am so thankful that I was able to lay all my burdens down at the cross this week and experience the weight of all my anxiety, fear and worry lighten. I know that this will be a continual process in my life, but I am learning to trust in his goodness and sovereignty... despite what I feel and despite my circumstances.

Are the circumstances of life weighing you down? 

Have you ever experienced those never ending tears?

Do you ever feel like you are an emotional wreck or experiencing a break down??

If so please cry out to God and reach out to trusted friends who can pray for you and just be there for you. I would love to pray for you also if you want to reach out to me:)

If this is not the case for you but you know someone going through a hard time, reach out to them. Even if you can't understand, just by listening and praying for them you are being the hands and feet of Jesus.

"Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep" Romans 12:15 ESV

As we celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior this weekend, let's remember that he is able to sympathize with our weaknesses, wants to help us in our time of need... and dry all our tears!

Breakfast Hash

Tuesday, March 22, 2016

I love making breakfast. It is definitely my favorite meal of the day. Since becoming more of a morning person over the years I feel like I have the most energy and motivation to make a great meal during this time of the day. Come dinner time it's a different story.

Morning times can be pretty crazy around here. There are a million little people running around; asking me questions, demanding my attention and actually requiring me to feed them. The nerve! On top of the normal chaos I have to make sure the kids do their chores and get everything ready for school.

As you can imagine I need a little time to myself in the morning to prepare for the day. Along with my devotional time,working out/ running; breakfast is my time to get energized to keep me going throughout the day. It's not always peaceful but I try to sit and enjoy my breakfast with the kids and savor my coffee, even if it's while they are reading to me or doing their chores. Most days I get to my coffee and it's cold but I rarely miss eating my breakfast.
A couple weeks ago I went out with my sister to First Watch; a breakfast chain in this area. It was great. I got their mexican breakfast hash. It was so good. I thought to myself, "I could make this at home!"

Sometimes it's hard for me to pay money to go out to eat for breakfast when I feel I could make it just as good at home. Granted there are many things I can't make and I will gladly pay someone to cook and clean up for me but when it comes to breakfast food I can be a bit of a snob. You see I use mostly freshly milled flour to make our pancakes and fresh eggs right from our backyard chickens. So I guess I have some grounds for feeling this way.

Back to the hash. I made my own variation at home and now it is one of my favorite meals to make. You can make your own version as well. The possibilities are endless!

Breakfast Hash

2Tbs. Butter- for cooking
Potatoes/diced -I would say use 1 potato each person
Onions- 1/4 per person
Bacon- 1-2 strips per person
Eggs- 1-2 per person
Arugula- a few leaves per person
Salt and pepper to taste

Bake bacon in 350 oven on pan covered in aluminum foil. Cook till crispy. Throw diced potatoes and onions in pan with butter. Cook till potatoes are crispy and soft and onions are translucent. Season with salt and pepper. Once potatoes are cooked you can use the same pan to cook eggs. I like them soft with the white covering the yokes. To do this put some butter in pan and crack your eggs in. After a minute pour in a little bit of water and cover with a pan top. Let cook for another minute or so till whites cover the top but the yoke is still soft inside.

Place Arugula in bowl or plate cover with potatoes and onions and bacon and top with eggs. Enjoy!

Are you a breakfast snob?

What's your favorite meal of the day?

The Oxymoron of Christ Print (from the archives)

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Everything in my life hinges around what we are going to be celebrating this Easter...the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Every day I depend on the Jesus' blood that was so graciously shed for my sins. I can not imagine going through life without knowing the unconditional love and forgiveness of Christ.

 I thought I would bring out this poem that I wrote last year. The words came quickly and easily as Jesus revealed himself to me as God, humble King and Savior. He is the opposite of everything we are, yet he became like us. He bore all our sin and shame so that we could be made like him and experience his presence now and for all eternity.

I hope these words help you and I to reflect on who Jesus is and what he has done for us on the cross, not only this Easter season but every single day.

2 Week Dinner Meal Plan

Sunday, March 13, 2016

I can not believe it has been over 2 weeks already since my last dinner meal plan post! Sorry! Time somehow got away from me. I wonder how that happened?;P

Is it only my kids, or are yours always hungry as well?? I heave a sigh of relief after cooking a big meal and finish helping the kids clean up when not too long after I hear, " I'm hungry." "Can I have snack?"

What is wrong with my children?!

My kids are just growing at a rapid pace right now or they have some kind of tapeworm. I guess it explains why we have been going through food at a faster pace than we used to. We are not big milk drinkers in our house and mostly use it for cereal and cooking but we went through a whole gallon in 2 days. And I don't even have teenagers yet!

On to feeding these ravenous bottomless pits! ( and my husband and I;)

Week 1

Sunday- Homemade Chicken Soup
Saute 2 Tbs. butter in large pot. Saute 1/2 onion and 4 cloves garlic. Once golden brown add 2 carrots/2 celery stalks/ chopped up. Put leftover premade whole chicken in pot. Cover with 2 cartons of chicken broth. Let simmer on medium low till chicken is falling off the bone. Remove all the bones and skin from pot. Add 1-2 cups of water. Add 1/2 bag of noodles. Add salt and pepper to taste and parsley.

Monday- Shepard's Pie
Brown beef or turkey meat. ( I use a whole package of turkey meat from Sam's club)Drain. Add 1 cup of chicken or beef stock to meat. Saute onions, garlic in butter. Add in peas and carrots cut up in small pieces. Add a little white wine. Cook until vegetables are tender and wine is cooked out. Add tomato sauce to meat. About half a jar. Meanwhile boil 10-15 peeled potatoes. Drain. Put back in pot. Add 1/4 stick of butter, 1-1/2 cups of milk. Mix or mash till light and fluffy. Add salt and pepper. Put meat and vegetables in casserole dish.( I use an aluminum foil one.) Top with mashed potatoes. Top with mozzarella cheese. Cook for 20 minutes at 350.

Tuesday- Taco Tuesday
Brown beef or turkey meat. Drain. Add taco seasoning packet with water. Heat tortillas. Serve with sour cream, salsa, guacamole, cheese, lettuce.--- This is my go to meal when I don't know what to make or don't have a lot of time. My kids could make this it's so easy.

Wednesday- Crockpot Balsamic and Onion Pot Roast (I used venison) This is my go to pot roast recipe! Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans.

Thursday-Chicken Nuggets and Mac and Cheese 
Yes, I make this a lot. My kids eat it!

Friday -Homemade Pizza
You know it has to be pizza!

Saturday- Chicken Cashew

Week 2

Sunday- Chicken Cobb Salad

Monday- White Bean Chili
Put Chicken Breast in crockpot.( I use 4-5) Cover in Chicken stock. Add Taco seasoning.Cook on low for 5 hours or 3 on high.  An hour before chicken is ready add in a can of white beans, corn, fire roasted tomatoes. Add in 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of half and half. Serve with sour cream, cilantro and cheese!

Tuesday -Fish Tacos 
Dip Fish in fish batter. Fry till light and brown. Serve in tortillas with salsa, sour cream, cheese, guacamole, coleslaw and cilantro

Wednesday-Take out Fake out Broccoli Beef

Thursday-Meatball lettuce wraps with mango salad and basil cashew sauce

Friday- Baked Fish with rice and green beans or salad
Oil 9/11 baking pan with olive oil. Lay fish in pan. ( Use a thick fish like grouper but any kind will work good) Coat fish with mayonnaise. Cover with salt pepper and parmesan. Cook for 15- 20 minutes.

Saturday- Sour Cream Noodle Bake

I want to clarify that some days I do not make all of these meals. If we happen to have leftovers(by some miracle) We will eat them the next night. Though I usually like to have them for lunch. I find it helps to have a meal written down for each night even if we switch it around or eat something else. It just gives me peace of mind to know what we are going to be eating. Somedays I will make 2 or three meals at a time if possible while I am already cooking and making a mess.

I hope these meals give you some ideas when you are trying like myself to answer the never ending question of what to make for dinner!

Spring Cleaning List Printable

Friday, March 11, 2016

I have a love/hate relationship with cleaning. I love things to be clean. I hate/dislike cleaning them over and over again. Sigh... But it must be done. I have been trying really hard to delegate as much of the cleaning as I can to my kids as they are getting older, but they seem to make more messes than they clean up. My main areas of focus in my home are the kitchen, living room and bathroom. If those areas are clean I can at least function. The school room and bedrooms are often sadly left neglected till they are so bad that I finally get everyone together to help do a big deep cleaning of them.

Spring seems to be the official season of cleaning and I admit my house could use some deep cleaning. I thought if I made a list of all the areas that often get overlooked it would hopefully motivate me to clean them. Because let's face it with 5 kids the state of my house is in mostly survival mode. I am just going for liveable these days. One day my house will be immaculate and dust and dirt free, but probably very quiet. So for now I'll do what I can and learn to live with and even love the chaos.

I don't know about you but I go through moods or spurts of cleaning. Somedays I just want to clean, clean, clean; wanting everything to be immaculate, and then there are those other days when I just do what I can to keep the house liveable. And then there are days want I want to do absolutely nothing! Though this sounds nice, there is usually not a day that goes by that I don't do some sort of cleaning. I try to be consistent with my main target zones so I don't end up getting overwhelmed; staying on top of the dishes/kitchen,living room, laundry and bathroom. Which really means I have to stay on top of my kids to do their chores and then follow along behind them making sure their work was up to code;P

It's pretty sad to admit but I usually only do deep cleaning when I am 9 months pregnant and in full force nesting mode. So that means that I have only deeped cleaned my house every 2 years. I am due for another baby! Since God hasn't seen fit to give us one as of yet, I am going to have to will myself into giving our house a good deep cleaning because it really needs it!

I have listed all the areas in my home that I am hoping to tackle room by room. Some of the things I have listed are usually overlooked and others areas are cleaned more than others, but I thought it would be good to just list them all. Whether it be dusting, scrubbing, using some good ol' elbow grease or organizing; I think it's safe to say that these are all defined as cleaning. I hope you will join me as I attempt to spring clean and we can motivate each other! Happy Cleaning!

Be sure to check out all of my natural cleaning products!

---->Spring Cleaning List Printable

Do you have certain areas in your home that you focus on?

How often do you deep clean?

Do you have a love/hate relationship with cleaning also?

p.s. My apologies. One of the words on the list is spelled wrong. I thought I thoroughly went over it but I guessed I missed it:( It's just too much work to go back and redo the whole thing. Such is life. Everything is not always perfect. Thanks for understanding;)

Making Monday a fun day

Sunday, March 6, 2016

Let's face it, after a weekend of church, running errands, cleaning,lesson and meal planning, birthday parties and trying to fit in some time to relax and rest, Monday can be a drag. It can be really hard to be  motivated to get back into the normal routine; well at least for me and my students. To ease our way back into the school week I have been trying to come up with some ways to help me and my children to actually look forward to Mondays.

I started trying to incorporate more hands on activities and games into our day. As I did so I found that not only were my kids excited about starting the school week but I was also.

Here are some ways that I have gone about changing Monday into a fun day. Read the rest of the post over at --->My Joy Filled Life.

To the mom who doesn't have it all together (from the archives)

Thursday, March 3, 2016

I have had a lot of moms ask me lately, "How do you find time to blog?" Believe me, I get it.The answer is that we all make time for things we enjoy. My family is my priority but I believe it's healthy for me to have some outlets that I can do from home. Do I balance this perfectly? No. But as I seek Jesus first I pray that everything else will fall in it's rightful place.

Blogging is deceiving. There are some days that my husband takes all the kids out and I can bust out a couple of posts at once or I have a few that I am working a little bit here and there. There are also some amazing programs that I can schedule my posts in advance during the week; making it look like I wrote all week when I really didn't do anything. The thing is that I never want blogging to be something that people compare themselves to me by. I know it will happen because I do the same thing sometimes. The thing is, none of us has it all together, or does everything perfectly or has the same priorities.

I think we can agree that comparing ourselves with each other is a common problem we all have. I was so excited to know that this post has resonated with so many and was recently featured at for every mom. I hope it encourages you as well to stop comparing yourself and look to the only perfect one as your example.

Do you struggle comparing yourself to other moms? This post has some encouraging truths to help you overcome your insecurities.

When I first started reading mommy blogs I always wondered how these super mama's managed to not only make beautiful, time consuming homemade foods and body products, keep a perfectly organized home, homeschool a bajillion children and blog about it as well; all with a smile on their face and a great attitude. Though I was truly inspired and encouraged by them, I felt like I must not have it all together since I was barely able to get anything thing done throughout the day... let alone blog.

Lo and behold here I am today...blogging and doing all those things I thought I could never do; though I only blog when I can since I have a 14 month old that is my siamese twin, have to homeschool two boys in grade school and a daughter in kindergarten, put food on the table and keep the house somewhat get the picture!

Since feeling led to start this blog I have a new perspective on life behind the blog. Though I try to be as real and transparent as I can, there are many things I can't always share or really don't want to. It's much easier to share my accomplishments and success rather than my failures and catastrophes.

I love taking pictures of my kids, projects and recipes and try to make them look as nice as I can but for every picture I show there are 20 that didn't turn out right and lots of messes cleared out of the way to get at least one decent shot. Because who wants to look at dirty messes and failed recipes? There is also usually a lot of crying and whining in the background that thankfully you can't hear!

Looking at other mom's (their homes and blogs) and comparing ourselves is unfortunately a part of the mommy culture, but it's not how God calls us to live.

"When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves by themselves; they are not wise." 2 Corinthians 10:12

Somewhere on my journey as mom and wife I chose to stop comparing myself to everyone else.(though I still struggle at times) As mother's and wives we are all going to do things differently and have different priorities for our families. There is not a one fits all rule for motherhood. Yes, there are many times when I am not doing it right and neither are you, but that is a part of the learning and growing process. Sometimes we have to figure things out for ourselves and our families.

I am so thankful for those wise mama's who saw me doing everything wrong and never told me, who gave me advice when I asked and encouraged me when I failed.

When I start to think that I have it all together God quickly reminds me that I most definitely do not. On one such occasion this week God showed me how super human I am not. Read here.

 We all are going to mess up and fail; we are flawed beings. Yes, it's pretty depressing but let me encourage you dear mama with this truth...we serve a perfect Savior who is able to take a our messes and failures and redeem them and use them for his glory!! He has grace for us every day. Don't you feel better now? I know I do! It's so freeing to admit that we don't have it all together... but we serve the One who does!

"But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me."( NIV 2 Corinthians 12:9)

When you start to feel bad about all the things that you don't do right remind yourself of the things you are doing right!

Your house may not always be clean but you let your kids make forts in their rooms.

You may not blog but you are writing stories of joy, inspiration, encouragement and love on the hearts of your children, husband and friends.

You may not always make gourmet, organic, homemade meals but your husband's and children's tummies are always full.

You may not be be crafty or organized but you find your own ways to be creative and make the most of your time and home.

You kids may not always be wearing clean clothes because you let them play in the dirt.

You may feel like you are always an emotional wreck because you care so much for your family.

You may not always have time to get all the laundry put away because you play with your kids when they ask you.

You may not always act out of love and have the best attitude but you ask for forgiveness and humble yourself when you need to.

You may not know how to teach math or english well to your children but you teach them about Jesus who does all things well!

Do you ever feel like you are the only mama who doesn't have it all together or know what she is doing?

Do you tend to view blogger mom's as superhuman and compare yourself to them?

How do you keep your perspective and not get caught up in comparing yourself to other moms?
